This is the alternative, FAR more spicy exit to Satterfield's Crack.

Instead of scrambling to the back of the chimney atop Satterfield's, sack up, look left, and jam desperately that evil, big chockstone. The crux for some is just getting into position. You'll need to be a yoga master or else know how to pretzel yourself around if you start with your back against the main wall (easier, until you realize you've got to spin 180).

Reach out, step left on that blank damn wall, and pray. Good luck!

(The Kelman guidebook calls this a 9. I call it sandbag.)

Descent: Rap anchors after you pull the boulder. Double ropes to the ground or one rope to a ledge below you with more rings. You COULD do another short pitch of 5.6(?) to the very top, but why screw this pooch?


This is atop Satterfield's. Weren't you listening?


Small gear abounds once you work yourself up to the launching pad. Secret finger cracks in the wall behind you, or else stuff bomber cams into the very pinches you need in order to jam your way out of this hell. It helps to have sack, too.
