Gaping wide butt crack in a chocolate slab. Beware of the finish it might spit you out.

No joke, for some reason this is one of my favorite trad routes in the Red

Top out makes it! Eron Roy on the FA too, fond memories squeezing up this, think this was my first ground up fa, pooping my pants up top.

Aaron Saxton and his buddy Rob FA'd this with some aid, doing a lot of cleaning on the way up. I was sorta glad they never came back for the free ascent, watching them sketch up it with aid was scary enough haha
