POW, Right in the Rat, 5.11

2nd Pitch- 25m- 5.11/ Enter the steep crack right off the deck. The crux is at the end of this crack before you move into the small alcove above to pull a small roof. It is sort of a transition move left as the crack leans that can really mess you up if you don’t get the sequence correct. Once you squeezed into the small alcove/box above, pull the roof to a decent ledge with a fixed rappel.

A tasty shot

I can see why the crux is at the transition. Even from "here" it looks gripping, though for you all more accomplished, take it in your stride.

Though the imposing side wall reminds me of a line in North Wales that I did a couple of times.

Re: A tasty shot

thanks, the frog, I love the name....I also love corners, chimneys and off widths....most of my Zion partners are superior crack climbers but turn over the wide stuff to me...it makes for a good marriage...off to the Canadian Rockies and Bugaboos for some cooler weather. cheers!
