Description 

Start climbing a thin hand/hand crack with tons of face holds. Face climb and jam up this thing. Crux is the last few moves which can be jammed or face climbed or a combination.

After about 25 feet of this you end on a ledge with a bolted chain anchor.


Location 

Far side of the wall. There is a little alcove and a ledge the routes start on the ledge. "Oral Office" is one right of the middle one. It is left of a wide crack - "Gargling Sperm"

Bolted Anchor shared by all routes in this alcove.


Protection 

Gear to 3"

5.8 in the guide book. Crack is kind of flared, and alot of the rock is hollow or crumbling. Def gets the heart pounding when you can feel the rock your hand is jamming in moving. NOT a good beginner lead.
