An uneven route that begins with 60 ft of lichen-covered 5.7+ climbing on a somewhat ledge-prone arete and finishes up a steep and exposed finger crack on the face.


Ramp/arete left of Rat Crack, which is the obvious gaping hole. If you're going to anchor from trees and rappel down, watch your ends. I used almost the whole 60 m rope getting down.


Falcon guide gives this a PG.

I tried to lead the route today for the first time and I fell in the last move. I found the route much harder than more of the 5.10s that I lead in Gunks. The protection for half of the route is very poor. The traverse half way to the route is very thin. I protected the move with a tiny wire under my feet. The last 40 feet are very intense with no rest. I give a personal grade of 5.10b/c.
