Description 

From the boulder, weasel your way up the wide crack/squeeze chimney into the corner. Continue up the corner/chimney, past the big flake thing sticking out of the corner, to the top.

Location 

In a large, left-facing corner -- to the right from Crimson Corner. Look for a boulder leaning against the left face of the corner, with a wide crack splitting an overhang above.

To descend, walk off left via the Uberfall Descent.

Protection 

a light rack, no anchors

Climbed this for the first time this year. It's a bit of a novelty running up behind the big boulder. Not exposed, probably good for bringing a newb up on his first climb. It's harder than a 5.2 as you ascend the 2nd chimney to the top. Walk off.

Don't think this is a good climb for a new leader. A couple of awkward moves, ok gear, but almost a guarantee of rope drag. Other than the initial move through the slot, nothing exciting.

A bit claustrophobic at the bottom. If you like spiders, this climb is for you!

Brought a newb up this on Sunday. It was his first and last climb. He left the cliff immediately. Guess it's not a good climb for a newb.
