Overhung sandy Off-width anyone?
This Crack is located on North Butte, just above the old truck cab in Red's Canyon. You can barely see the crack from the road. It's very light colored sandstone, but is in the whiter area of rock. The approach is a burly hike. This one is wide, mostly off-width and overhung. The crack is dirty inside, but on solid rock. Would probably go free at 5.11d, but I haven't had a chance to try the red point again.
North Butte, Reds Canyon just past Tomsich Butte. A burly approach a day keeps the climbing hoards away!
Lots of bigger cams with a couple #4's and #5's
North Butte, Echo Crack is just around the corner ...
