This is a left-sloping, hand crack that joins up with Wide and Ugly midway through the route. It is a little dirty and vegetated, but it is actually a really nice climb. The vertical cracks in the section shared with Wide and Ugly are a lot of fun!


This is the hand sized crack to the right of Wide and Ugly, or the second crack system left of Bushwhack.


Hands to fingers, possibly (possibly removed) rap anchors at the top.

Per J D: there are rap anchors at the top (right) of this climb.

There are rap anchors at the top (right) of this climb. Pretty fun, Orenczak gives it 5.9.

I thought this climbed really nicely. Disclaimer: I'm new to leading and sewed this up! I placed 1 x #3 (long runner), 2 x #2 (long runners), 2 x #0.75, several finger sized, nuts. I didn't have anything tiny on me, but you could easily place some micro cams about halfway up.
