This is a pretty good climb with a bit of a loose beginning. Climb up low angle rock to a jumbled, rising, leftward traverse and then into a open-book corner and crack system rising up on very easy climbing with good holds to the top of the cliff.


This climb is the crack and obtuse corner at the right hand margin of Stealth Slab and is accessed from down and right. This is up and left above Everpresent Lane and down and right from Edgemaster and Slabmaster, about equidistant between them.


A standard light rack or solo. Descend from bolted anchors up and to the left on one of the various sport routes, or down-climb the route.

I didn't think this was a trivial lead. I placed a #2 and #3 Camalot down low amid hollow-sounding blocks before a long, unprotected traverse to the left. Next decent placement was a #2. Placed #4 C4, green Alien and #1 Camalot up high in dihedral. A #3 might have fit better than the #4 C4.
