Chase leading Battered Sandwich

2016 Seasonal Raptor Closure on the Diamond MORE INFO >>>


This nice 5.9 crack climb features some wide cracks then a flared chimney, with good pro the entire way up.


On the right side of the crag. It is a left facing corner, with trees growing just to the left of it. Rappel from the bolts with a single 60.


Cams to 5"
60 meter rope

This is a great route with varied climbing. I didn't use anything bigger than a 3.5" cam. Definitely save some 0.5-1 sized cams(BD) for the upper section.

How is this route only listed as two and half stars? This is the route that brings people to the cliff!

This is a great route. It's basically about 40 feet of 5.9 4 inch crack followed by 40 feet of 5.7 flared chimney. To truly be 'well protected' you'll need two of each from 3 - 4 and a 5 for the base of the chimney. A selection down from there, but you don't need anything small. I didn't have all that and it was kind of scary. Next time I will.

I really like this route, but faced with the top out with the rope making a 90 degree turn over the sharp edge to the anchor I trudged up to a tree to make a directional so the rope goes straight down the route.
I added a bolt for this reason, it did not seem to be worth adding another anchor.

There is now a fixed #5 on route. I tried to booty it, but no luck.
