Blake starting Hamburger Crack

Description 

Follow the double crack system to the top of the block, using a combination of face hold, hand jams, and finger jams. This is a fun route to put someone on who does not have a solid basis in crack technique. They tend to flail at the bottom. Using just the left crack earns you a 5.10 rating.
  • RCM&W #62, p.167.

Location 

About 15 yards climber's left and downhill of the keyhole is a large freestanding block. This route is found on the face facing the St. Croix River. To reach the top to set up top rope, scramble up a gully to the left of the keyhole route and to the right of this formation.

Protection 

Nuts, and cams, nothing bigger than thin hands is needed. For the top rope setup slings or webbing and carabiners are all that is needed.
