OverviewOne of the best protected climbs at Mecca. The moves are fun and fairly solid. This ever steepening slab peaks to a vertical, left-facing crack seam crux near the finish. Once here, precariously stemmed and slightly pumped, it’s time to blindly stab your left hand around the roof directly above the seam and hit the Thank God Hold that is just out of reach for shorties like me. The anchor is equipped with open shuts, which make very unsafe TR anchors.
