It is easier to layback the top section, though on...

Description 

A long, left-leaning, left-facing corner.

Looking from below, you might think the climbing was fairly monotonous. But actually, you can use all sorts of methods to get up it, and there are quite a few face holds on the left wall to get rests, particularly near the bottom.

The crux is probably near the top, just above where the horizontal crack cuts right.

The top has a two-bolt chained anchor.


Location 

Look for the obvious, long left-facing corner just right of Eraserhead (the bolted face right off the ground).


Protection 

Gear to 4". A few finger-sized stoppers, and lots of cams.

Also fun to traverse into the top pitch of magic fern at the horizontal right below the chimney.

I think this might just be the funnest, most classic one-pitch 5.9 at Index. The pitch has lots of little rests, and it helps to use a variety of methods.

I did some cleaning of this route a couple of years ago, ferns, moss, lots of dirt and loose rocks in the crack, and it still sheds dirt out of the crack which is a giant shield that goes through to Magic Fern. I would like to clear out the top out as well, so many projects.
I agree with Jon, this is a great 5.9, also Battered Sandwich too.
I seem to remember going up to the Magic fern anchor a few years back, now there is a SS anchor.
