Most people solo this one but it does take good fist-sized gear.

A low crux leads to easier climbing at the top.

This is a good route to demonstrate how to properly place gear.


next route right of Slither and Squeeze 5.2 about 40 feet left of that route around the corner.


fist sized and bigger gear.
