This is actually a variation to the 2nd pitch of Unleash The Lions. From the anchors, move right into a sweet OW hand and fist crack. Follow the wide crack (#4 Camalot) throught the roof and then into some nice angling finger cracks. Belay up and behind a large boulder....

This route was super lichened up when we did it a couple weeks ago...not too much loose stuff though. Due to the condition of the route, I just figured that it hasn't seen an ascent yet, plus no record of it in Gillett's new SSV Book, or on the Proj.... If I'm stealing this route from anyone, please let me know and I can edit this entry.


This is the 2nd pitch variation to Unleash the Lions.


SR, #4 Camalot could be useful.
