crack climb is more or less in the center of the face. it goes straight up and is to the right of a left leaning crack.


this crack will take small stoppers/cams. anchor takes medium cams

Stout moves through a hand and finger crack. Seemed 5.10a to me.

For the continous climbing at the grade i give this route two stars.

Compared to other climbs on this wall which have fun crux sections on the lower half then mostly easier climbing above, this was my favorite of the three i did here.

I have to agree with the .10a, which is the crux at the start. This route was originally rated 5.7, which made it one of the biggest sandbags in the Monument. The climbing remains stout for the grade, and the .9+ section above will certainly get your attention....5.9..?...sandbag-ish.
