Crack to scoop to face to crack. Done.


One of the most impressive and most difficult climbs in the Den. Starting on the Exorcist, climb the crack and corner to the top of the overhang and move right up the face past a few bolts before arching back left to gain the hard-to-miss vertical crack above. Finish up the crack to the anchor.

The upper crack seeps frequently, marring an otherwise beautiful climb.


At the right end of the Den, left of and below the actual cave. Also left of and below the Pocket Problem. Look up for the vertical crack and start in the corner/crack directly below.


Bolts & gear to anchor - recently rebolted as well
