Description 

Excellent corner, crack is very clean and takes all the pro you throw in it. Face holds make this easier than it looks. Look for a belay ledge at the 2nd roof on the left.


Location 

Large corner formed by Rainbow Buttress/Wall and North Walls. Look for a black and brown corner; in the shade year round.


Protection 

fingers to wide as you want.

I love this climb!!!! It's a great one to teach trad skills!!!
2nd pitch is short. Can anchor on top with tree or use anchor from Green Lantern.

This was a fun first Trad lead. Plenty of comfy stances to park and sort through gear. At start of second pitch, stay left of the slightly overhung 5.9 slot on Shadow Fax. That was a bit spicier than expected but still fun.

Did this for my first trad lead as well. Linked as one long pitch. Great stances to place gear and placing gear was very straight forward and obvious. Thought there was one section that may be considered run out if you dont have any larger cams (think I placed a #4 and was glad I had it). Very fun and easy climb.
