Description 

This is a striking line on the left side of 4x4 as you're trudging up the approach trail. Located in a lighter colored rock than most of the dark sandstone around it, it is a straight up splitter in a left facing dihedral. It has a sandy short beginning with a great #1 camalot placement at the beginning of the crack. It then goes to great hands (#2 camalots) and gets progressively wider to a sandy sloping ledge just below the anchors


Location 

Take the approach trail to the center of 4x4 then walk left along the base about 200ft.


Protection 

#1 - #4 camalots.

3 friends fit better for the beginning of the route (right above the roof)and then 3 camalots (2 each)to a 4 camalot before the chains. Fun route.
