The topout on this is pretty hard. Bring some webbing to replace the worn rap webbing. Nice long route.

Route now has anchors eliminating the grovelling mossy top out. Incredibly fun. More people should get on it.

This is a fun one. With anchors it's probably actually 5.8.

What size is the crack? I walked by it once a long time ago and seem to remember it being a wide finger crack or hand crack. Any info would be much appreciated.
