|Lower Blair I
This route climbs a hand/fist/ow crack system on the east face of Blair I. Starts with lichen crusted traverse into hand crack flake, followed by ow slot (crux). Climb past chockstone and easier terrain. Belay at 70 feet. Short pitch of 5.9 slab to top. Could be done in one pitch with rope drag.
This is the first crack system to the left of the East Face Direct route. Rap off two bolt anchor at top of formation. A single 60 meter rope will suffice.
Gear to #6 Friend is nice.

Is this the crack filled with crap literally, the direct start flared nothing? The top popcorn lichen everywhere? If so, I have bad news for you.

Could be! Did you do it? What did you call it? Is there another crack system immediately to the left?
