Mountain Project continues to expand with Hiking Project, and we're giving away loads of gear from Arc'Teryx, Superfeet, & Zeal. Check it out!

Description 

Start at the top of a large block. Place some gear and climb the shallow left facing corner/crack system as it diagonals up and to the left. As the crack system ends, place a good piece (blue alien or similar) and make a long reach to a good jug (crux). Mantle up and follow the crack system to join High Test just above and to the right of the sickle shaped ledge. This is a great variation on High Test with only one hard move for the grade.

Location 

Start at the large block on the ledge about 15 or 20 ft to the right of High Test.

Protection 

Small nuts and small cams. A standard Seneca rack for High Test. Shut at the top of High Test.

Pretty sure Jim Nigro and I did the first ascent of this in the fall of '75 or '76. A direct start to High Test.
