Description 

This is a great line and one of the harder offerings at the base of Cerberus Gendarme. Pretty straightforward: finger jams in a splitter crack and they get thin before the anchors, which is probably the crux for most people, as it was for me.


Location 

This route is about 150 feet right of Cherry Crack and ascends the obvious thin splitter that cuts through the clean face.


Protection 

A bunch of finger-size pieces, including blue Metolius but no bigger than purple Camalot.

A few .3 BD's were the perfect for the upper thin crack. Blue metolius were tipped. Not the best warm-up.

Wow this thing is incredible. Will take every .3 or .4 you throw at it. Stellar route, definitely one you keep replaying in your head after. Fantastic!

RE: What Andy says below, definitely worthwhile bringing a pair of .5's and I think a single .75, 1, and 2 or 3.

Despite what it says in the description , I managed to place a .5, .75, 1 and 3 Camalot on this route. Plus two .3 and .4 Camalots and a #1 C3 as well. This is indeed a great route- clipping the chains is the crux IMO.

I remember doing this back in the day. Pumped as I reached the belay, I grabbed the webbing threaded through a two pin belay —one popped out, the other slid. Needless to say, after placing some cams, I hauled up the drill. A great sustained line.
