BETA PHOTO: The start of Holy Mackerel.


Start at a right facing crack that angles right near the top that puts you on a nice belay ledge about 50 ft. up. The belay ledge at the top is an awesome ledge to take photos.


Obvious layback crack just left of flounder. Only accessible in the winter when the lake is drained.


Gear to 4 inches to a set of ring anchors on the ledge.
