Chuck Wagon Crack

enjoying the solid pro
I've led this route a number of times. The first pitch is around seven and a cruise. The second pitch is problematic. Small wires get you going (5.9). The problem is the crack above. I've never been able to set satisfactory pro in the lower section of the crack. Once, after climbing it, I rapped down and spent about fifteen minutes trying to solve the problem; I failed. A fall when moving up the crack (5.8) will be a serious challenge for those lower wires. A fall here could result in never experiencing a fall again.
Standard rack, be sure to have small wires along.

The first part of the climb is sweet. Great pro and very interesting and sustained 7ish moves. after that, the pro looks like a total nightmare. not for this poooooosie.

Only did the first pitch. Exited right to bolter anchor with slings. Decent climbing with good gear.
