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

Looking up "Harvard." The "big flake thing" in the description can just be seen poking out of the dark cave area just below the top.

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!
