Description 

A very obvious, and deceptively hard (read: awkward!) finger crack on the same terrace that "Roaches on the Wall" is found.

The business is right off the deck. Battle the finger crack through a somewhat committing and hard to protect (blind placements) section to a good rest on jugs in a horizontal 35' up. Once you're deflamed, work up a short corner (right-facing) then angle right across the face to meet up with the pleasant crack finish of "Roaches".

A great route, and well worth the effort.


Location 

The obvious finger crack at the top of the approach trail to the "Roaches on the Wall" terrace.


Protection 

A standard rack up to a #2 Camalot.

This route is just plain hard, right from the very first move...and it's in-your-face-STEEP!
