The obvious crack on the south face, which is the face that is visible from the approach. A hard start leads to easier grounds.


South face.


Trad gear, cams and nuts work best.
Two bolts at top for anchor and rap.

See when I did the rating on this one, I was between G and PG-13 for gear, and then I realized that I found it quite easy to find bomber gear if you have a standard trad rack up to size 3/4 cams.
