Levi Van Buggenum styling the classic Edwards Crac...


The uber-classic canyon trad route! A splitter fingercrack up a yellow, right-facing dihedral capped by a roof. Ascend it using assorted stemming, laybacking, fingerlocks, and faceholds; save some energy for the devious traverse below the upper roof to the anchors.


On the left side of the wall. Obvious splitter yellow dihedral.


Doubles of medium stoppers BD #8-#10 work great, also some #.4-#.75 camalots or equivalent, and one larger #2 or #3 for the top.

I would suggest a #3 c4 for the roof. I had a little trouble getting my #2 c4 in a placement quickly, maybe i'll not be as concerned about a little extra weight next time lol.

Definitely agree with Clay the #3 at the roof is bomber.Bring lots of .5 cams
