One of many great lines on a remarkable wall. A heady must-do for mid-11 climbers.

Hand jam the butt crack to make the 5th clip easy.

Awesome route. Very similar to Whip-Stocking except without the sit down rests.

There is a sit down rest before the butt crack hold. A sweet route.

This route stays dry in a downpour, for downpour it did while I was on it this past Saturday. The anchors, however, quickly turn into an unavoidable waterfall in a downpour. I got soaked.
