BETA PHOTO: Climber on Torpedo

Description 

One of the Forks classics. Located on the left side of the Davidson wall, 20 ft left of Loose Lips. Scramble up some easy blocks to a step right into a stemming corner with twin finger cracks. Plug in a piece or 2, and stem and jam up the beautiful cracks for 50 feet. When the left crack goes wide, follow the right crack to the rim.


Protection 

Double set of cams from black Alien to #3 Camalot.

I recall forgetting the rack on this one and did it with nothing bigger than a red Alien. Well protectable as such if need be.

This has got to be one of the best routes at the Forks. See a lot of people pulling into the left crack and straight in jamming, but man all those drop knees are way cool.
