A diminutive-looking line that can (and will, in my case) slap you in the face. The second you pull on you might think, “oh, this is harder than I thought”. Biting finger locks and powerful laybacks get you up to a good hold where you can clip a bolt and stand up and rest at a stance. One more bolt protects the final steep moves, which aren’t a gimme.

Probably best to not skimp on the gear. You’re never that far off the ground.


Across from the Chessapeak Wall, a stone's throw from the King and Queen formations.


2 bolts, stoppers and cams to 1.5"
