Getting into the business.


Start up low-angle chimney until you can reach out to first bolt above bulge. Climb face right past another bolt and into the handcrack. Up the handcrack until you can step left into finger crack. Up finger crack or, more accurately, up plates to side of crack, using crack for pro. Crack runs out 12 feet or so shy of the anchors, but climbing is easy there.


From where approach trail hits the rock, head right 6-8 minutes. The best approach passes the base in the grass and brush before heading up to and back along the base of the wall. Double rope rap, or shorty to anchor on "Driven by Fear". I doubt one could descend from the Fax Crack anchors to the ground with a single 70.


Rack to 3". Anchor is a thread and a bolt.
