Description 

Down and left of "Lalaland" is a steep jamcrack, to the right of an arete.
Fun jamming, up this crack leads to a face with three bolts and a two bolt anchor.

Draws and pro to 2.5".

I feel this is a strong candidate for best 5.8 in the ORG, primarily because of the great handjams at the bottom. Suprised others haven't given it more stars.

I agree with Dave. A great great and bold climber once commented to me that "if Stradivarius was in the Tetons their would be a book written about it."

Absolutely great initial crack. Beautiful hand jams and steep. The only dowfall is the shortness of the crack. The face above is fun enough. Well spaced bolts, but easy.

Felt like a 4* crack into a 1* face above. If there was more crack and less face, or if the climb just ended at the end of the crack, I think it would get a better rating. But, the crack section is great.

Wish I could give it 2.5*.
