BETA PHOTO: Chernobyl Crack


This is an excellent steep hand crack, and would be a good route for a novice leader. It is not in the 1992 Vogel guide.


This is an obvious splitter hand crack near the left end of the southwest face. Approach from the left and start on a ledge.

Fun route... did it twice just to get good and warmed up. Good to practice the hand jamin' and an easy walk off. In the sun and kinda quiet on what seemed like quite a busy day at the Park.

Easy route, but this isn't what I pictured a 5.5 crack to be. Its practically vertical and all hands (which is awesome). Compared to similar 5.7 and 5.8 crack lines at Jtree, I feel like this one should be around that grade.
