This was led ground up. It is a super fun, varied, finger crack with some face moves. The middle is tricky.


15 feet right of Land Shark, where the cliff drops a little. The route is way right, just left of the SS Minnow (rightmost, prominent chimney). There's a little boulder to start off of.


Cams from smallest Alien up to #0.75 Camalot. Bolted chain anchor.

I think I did this with Mike Cichon the other day. Great climb, short but sweet.

The gear on this route is a little weird at the crux...there is a good yellow Alien off the ground to keep you safe for the fun opening moves. The gear at the crux (yellow Alien back in the flare) is a little more on the bodyweight friendly side...don't take the entire flare up with a larger cam or the move will seem much harder. Like most of the gear routes at the East Quarry, I would be very leary of taking big falls on the marginal placements....

Followed this route yesterday with Mike C on lead. He led it easily. It's a sustained finger crack with some marginal gear placements. I had trouble in the middle of this route but eventually worked through it. Fun and challenging.

Fun, but hard route for me...great climbing with Mike C. on it as he gives good beta!
