Another Amphitheater classic! This route jams up a fist crack after the off-width Squirrel Cage start. Climb the crack to the roof, then move left to follow a crack angling left on the upper face. Fun interesting moves up crimps and jams on a slightly overhanging wall to the ledge below the top of the cliff.


The start is the same as for Squirrel Cage, but breaks off to the left, and follows the fist crack to the roof. Rappel off the top or walk around back to the base of the route.


Great gear, standard modern rack with a selection of stoppers and cams to 3.5-4", possibly bring doubles, of the larger sizes for the fist crack section.

More of a variation to the prominent corner than an obvious line in its own right. Nonetheless go right or left (Left through the steep big hand crack is Sickle)it is a good line.
