Crack of Ono.

Temporary Access Impediment MORE INFO >>>


This is a beautiful, 80 foot dihedral/corner crack. It is great, clean hands to fingers in the corner. The name is from locals who told us about it. It is a great climb with great protection.


The route is tucked in an east side buttress. It is a left-facing corner on right side of RR tracks. A few steep sport routes can be seen from the tracks. Scramble up left side of rock to see your prize tucked in the back (NE side) of this chunk of rock.


The anchors can be seen from base of climb.

I climbed this in 1986 with Rusty Kirkpatrick. Pretty sure ours was the FA. Had to clean quite a bit out of the crack as I recall....
