One of the most memorable 5.10 pitches in Tahoe. Wild reaches between basketball-sized knobs on an overhanging wall. Itís hard to tell what is more cool: the moves off the huge overhanging knobs or slinging the knobs as your only protection for most of the climb. The cruxes come between the second and third knob tie-offs and at the crack at end of the knobs. Even though the knobs offer solid protection, this is a spooky lead for some. To toprope the route, climb one of the easier routes on the east side.
