Description 

Really long; really cool route found at the Hideout in Muir Valley. Follows an obvious crack system that goes through some gently overhanging rock and up the length of the wall. An exciting adventure!


Location 

The dihedral located where the trail for The Hideout dumps.


Protection 

Standard rack with runners. The wide crack staring down at you from 70 feet up narrows to a point where it will accept a bomber #2 Camalot up high.

Great route! Nice and long too. The quality of huge plate jugs at the top worried me a bit, but maybe that's because I'm not used to the Red

Plates that you haul on above the roof are SCARY thin, but seem to be solid. Fun route!
