Don't Jump Back Crack
|867 page views|
This climbs the right crack in the chimney on the cliffs just below Narcolepsy. Don't chimney, also don't fall too far backwards. A good climb with a few nice jams.
Long slings and gear for the anchors up top.

The first part of this lead is scary because you don't want to fall into the chimney. Once out of the chimney, you feel super exposed. Difficult stances for the grade; however, the crack takes nuts nicely (I placed five nuts and only one cam). Don't bother with any large pieces, all pro is small.

Watch out for rattle snakes in the corridor!

new chain anchors have been added to this route in the last month or so.
Not necessary but convenient no less.
