Follows the permanent, natural features in the real rock style construction and uses no bolt on holds.

A would be classic if it were outside and leadable. Start on in the center of the wall and climb the diagonally right to left trending flake feature. It is a very technical lyback on very dubious small feet. with a few crimps here and there.

The route designer called it the sucker crack because it looks easy from afar.


Dead center in the wall.


Top rope.
