Description 

Climbs nice 5.8 crack to a small ledge. From ledge, start up fingercrack then move to the exposed arete (crux) using the finger crack on your right side for pro and hand holds.


TR version using only the fingercrack goes at 5.11+

Location 

The leftmost route in the Savory Area. It is the obvious arete-crack located at the base of the huge down tree.

Protection 

Standard Bozoo rack should do it. Paul Sullivan says not to forget your pink tricam.

Climbs nice 5.8 crack to a small ledge. From here, climb the exposed arete using the finger crack on the right side for pro and hand holds. Crux near the top as you leave finger crack and exit to the arete.

bring Pink Tri-Cam!
