BETA PHOTO: Exit on the 5.4 slab and then go over to the worm ...


This is a perfect beginner's hand crack just to the right of worm drive. This crack is left leaning and utilizes the left side as a slab/ramp for feet. Begin behind the large boulder. A 'crux' move is near the top when the crack opens up to a fist jam. The climb finishes out left to a 5.4 slab. Belay from the worm drive anchors or behind the top of the slab- then lower off Worm Drive's anchors.


This climb is just right of Worm Drive about 7 feet.


Hand sizes & a #4 Camalot (protects the top before the slab). Lower off of Worm Drive's anchors.

What is the amazing crack just to the right of this climb? A friend and I climbed it today. I can't believe there isn't a line of people waiting to do that thing.

I think the route to the right is a 5.9-, or so I heard as reported in the guidebook. I thought it was 5.9, but I worked harder than that up top given my own set of errors. It is a beauty. Climbed it yesterday morning not knowing what it was - the wind whips through the crack and blows out to you (when from the west) as the crack goes all the way through the formation. Quite remarkable - this uniqueness and the route overall.
