Originally graded at 5.8 you may find something a bit sinister about Joe and Howey's sense of humor. Anyway locate a right facing dihedral that looks good from the ground, but is actually way better than that.

P1 5.8 150, A long Dihedral...About twenty feet in Hard 5.8 laybacking will give you a sense of what you in for... Good fun physical climbing all the way to the top, Ahh Satisfaction.


About 75 feet north of Lightning Crack, on the right side of the Triple S Buttress


Standard Rack, Bolt Anchors, Rap with two ropes.
