This is a nice, right-facing corner/crack with good jams and laybacks. The crux is getting off the ground and may feel a little spicy for the novice trad leader, as any protection for these moves would probably not help. It is best to just stand up and start protecting once established in the crack above.


This route is just left of Balance (the 4th? bolted route you come to as you approach up the hill from the west), and is an obvious crack in a rounded (sort of), right-facing corner.


Small to medium cams up to 2" would sew it up. One old piton exists but it may or may not hold a fall. 2-bolt anchor as for Balance.
