Dustin on Crimson Cringe
A super clean and long splitter on the right side of the Cascade Falls Area (its hard to miss). It starts and ends with interesting knob climbing up a steep face. Start by climbing up a ramp then traversing right across the knobs passing a bolt to the beginning of the crack. Fingers in the beggining, stacks in the middle then lieback/underclinging up higher. Lower off the bolts.
Another classic crack climb along the 140! If you want more climbing but no walking do Fish Crack as well, the finger crack just to the left. Have fun!
The obvious splitter seen from the lower cascade parking area
doubles in .3 to .5
triples in .75 to 1
one #3 and #4

By the way, that lower-off is 50 meters! (Yosemite Free Climbs, Don Reid, 1994).

You can rap to the anchors for fish crack then rap to ground from there

the length of the route is about 175 ft, not sure if two 50m will make to the ground, probably with some stretch
