You'll find this route 150' or so to the left of "King Otto's Castle". It's an obvious left leaning crack. Your stomach sould be empty before you head up. I had difficulty getting decent pro in to start. A tri-cam finally worked. Back up whatever you place; getting started will get your attention; and it doesn't let up.

There is a nice "ledge" about 2/3 of the way up. However, it isn't as big as it looks from the ground even though it will give you a break. A bomber belay can be built at the top. I liked this route a lot. Kevin Currigan

great route. The start is a bit run out, but stick with it. A bit stout for the grade.

I soloed the crack about 40ft right of this route thinking it was Don Genaro Crack. Any idea what it is? Felt about 5.8, 5.8+

A great diagonal crack with good jams and lieback moves. I used face features at the crux. Well worth your time.

very fun crack. good and plentiful pro. btw, the last juggy plate at the top of the crack flexes. didn't feel that on the lead up, but saw while belaying on top, when second pulled on that. pretty key exit hold. careful on the pull
