90 foot arching mostly hand crack, with a 20 foot big fingers/thin hands crux finish. Impecable rock quality, position and movement. One of the area's best and the climb to do at its grade


Locate the anchors for the climb Thanatos (plaque, and about 100 yards downstream). Walk up stream past a set of anchors for the climbs Cashew Corner and Stigmata(From these anchors you can look over the edge and see the obvious and stunning line). The next set of anchors are obvious and right above the top of the crack. Rap in from the top 90 feet to a bolted belay at a very small ledge above the river.


Standard rack with extras in the hands sizes. We used 2-#1 camalots, 3-#2 camalots and 2-#3 camalots. Save a couple thin hands pieces for the crux (purple and grey camalots)

This route is one of the single best pitches i've ever done!

We need more stars for this one.

This route looks spectacular. Adding it to the "to-do" list.
