The intimidating corner tucked in to the right of Belly offers up some of the craziest moves and most bizarre positions in the Red. Burl out the crux start in the left chimney/crack, then shimmy up the offwidth and out the hanging chimney system, clipping the Dirty Girl anchor if you are light on big cams. Save a finger sized piece or two for the exit. The right start would would probably bump this down into the 5.10 range, but expect some loose rock. Bring several large cams in the BD 5-6 range, and a decent amount of everything else. Belay or lower from the ledge anchor for the slab sport route right of Dirty Girl.

Insane route! Proud ground up insight by sir krampsalot. No bolt anchor yet but it will be there soon.

Fantastic climb. If you can stomach the start, the rest is bliss. Thanks for getting me out there.
