Splitter hand crack for first 15 feet, crack becomes featured for another 15 feet, last 10 feet is the crux flared, splitter finger crack.

There is a second pitch directly above this route that ends with two offwidth roof cracks, I think the first one goes at .11b and the second at .11c.
There is a bolted anchor on the face above each roof.


Mostly straight in crack climbing on crack a few feet to the right of the corner. Dihedral wall and corner crack to your left are off.


single set cams .3-2 and a set of small-med. nuts. Bolted anchor at top.

Top 10-15 feet are the crux. One or two tricky moves in the flared, off fingers crack, find a good lock before you pump out.

Bottom is probably 5.9'ish.

This is a great crack, the upper flared fingers are pumpy. If you do the hands start the crack is probably 10b... if you do the fingers start to the right of the hand crack it's likely .10c. The 5.11 crack just to the right (another God of Thunder variation) is absolutely stellar!
