Nine year old Emil on a successful climb of the Co...


The line, of course, is the obvious crack on the south face. This is a beautiful, short climb. Being only 5.7 one is tempted to boulder it. However, I measured it-it is 28' high and it pushes you out and vertical at the top. If you lead it the gear is there but several pieces are needed so you do not deck. I give it two stars because it is so easy to access and the moves are nice. Its just too short. I think its an s because the potential to deck is high.


Large cams if you're leading on gear would be helpful in addition to your standard rack. If you're top roping it some medium nuts to back up the eye bolt are needed.

This was my first-ever introduction to roped climbing 1959! I thought it was positively the hardest thing imaginable, 'cause I had no idea what I was doing. Once the neophyte learns that the feet are important and how to stem a rest or 2, it becomes a reasonable climb. I even took my 10 year old son there, some 26 years later, and coached him up the thing on his first attempt.

Overall, a terrific place for teaching some crack techniques.
