Lower Main Wall/East Buttress Trails Re-opened MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb directly up from an alcove on an exposed ledge taking care not to dislodge the hand and footholds on your belayer. The route is steep right from the get go. Sharp crimping up a V groove allows access to a sloping platform at the base of the overhanging finger crack. Work up the finger crack by any means possible, the footwork is difficult. There is a bolted anchor at the top with hangers, but no chains. Taking webbing or quicklinks would be advisable.


Location 

Follow the trail to the east at the base of the steep wall to the right of Zig Zag. Wrapping around the Snag Buttress and scrambling under a large tree will bring you to a small alcove. The route goes directly up from here to a visible overhanging finger crack.


Protection 

Difficult gear placements to 1"
2 bolt anchor with hangers at the top, but no chains.

Smooth sailing to crux, which felt hard to me, though short. Harder than any moves on Frogs in Space. The two bail nuts below the crux seem to agree... I didn't have a problem with gear, pop in a couple small pieces below the overhang and power through. Anyhow, still a fun route!
