This is the steep lieback crack system on orange and tan rock about 100 feet left of Prohibition. Unfortunately, the rock is not quite as good as it appears, although most of the larger chunks were dislodged during the FA and the movement is excellent. Traverse right through a cave up top to a rappel tree, or move left and walk towards the first tree that looks big enough to be trusted as a rap anchor.
Moves: unknown
Descent: Rap from tree
Stays Dry:
Owner: NFS
