Twin cracks lead to a single, blocky crack. There are so many blocks and edges to choose from that no crack technique is required.


Far right side of Horshoe Slabs. Approach the top via a Class-2 ramp on the right. For the specific location, click here


A few pieces to 2". The top now boasts a 2-bolt fixed anchor.

Fun climb. Definitely a 5.6 on trad lead. Was even able to stick a 4 in. The guide has it at a 5.6 as well.
