Climb up the North Overhangs route, and then bust up the left hand finger crack though the obvious roof. Right now (June 2011) a crow´s nest occupies the crack above the crux. There are 4 hatchlings in the nest.

The roof is about 7 or 8 feet long with a bomber hand jam at the bottom and then a series of thin hands and off-fingers.

The Knapp guidebook lists this as a far more accurate .12a, as opposed to the .11b it gets in the Gillett book.


Standard rack with extra #1 to #1.5 Friends for the roof.
