BETA PHOTO: Joseph Meeks rock chiseling skills were pretty goo...

Sometimes closed in spring for raptor nesting


Climb the thin dihedral past the "Joseph Meeks" chiseled out, then traverse left on great features and course face holds on a slab. Finish the crack system to the tractor chains.
The Crux is near the ground.


Located about 30 yards to the right of Deface Crack and 20 yards left of Pig Lloyd.
If you can't find the route, look for the "Joseph Meeks" chiseled out about 15' off the deck and that's your route.

Tricky little route! I liked it though. The 'crack' is useless for pulling moves from (at least for me). Good for protection at least.
