Description 

What an impressive 70 foot slightly overhanging climb that follows a thin crack starting on the left side of the wall and trends right before finishing at the top of the wall. While the thin crack offers enough protection to climb this traditionally the route is mostly face climbing with few good rests.
The starting hold is height dependent so there is a cheater stone build to start the route.
It would not be a bad idea to TR this and look at the gear before trying the red point if this is really your limit,the gear is tricky to place in some spots but bomber.

This is one of the only climbs in New Brunswick that is overhanging enough that you can climb it while it's raining.


Location 

This is the only climb located on the amazing over hanging wall.


Protection 

Thin- Bring 2 sets of small nuts one set of regular nuts and double cams up to a #3 orange master cam (purple .5 BD cam). Optional #1 BD cam 1 foot from top.
