Getting TherePark at the Cathedral Spires lot and go up the trail until you take the climbers trail that goes right off of the trail. You then take the 4-5 gully and the route starts about half way up the gully on the left. This is a complex area so you may want a book or a friend who knows the way if you do not.
Route DescriptionThe route starts with a wide crack
Below is a view looking at Kieth who has just made an interesting move to a little outcrop where you start the crux crack below that is a view of the crack from on the ground around the corner. You end up lying it back while peeking around the corner to your right to place gear which is somewhat difficult to place.
