following up the crack


Climb the crack up to a roof. I exited left, but it seems as if you can also exit right.


Clean crack capped by a large roof in the Playground area.


nuts and cams make it G. You can build an anchor at the top, or go waaay back to find a tree that isn't a pitch pine.

The crack takes tricams, small nuts and small cams. There are plenty of placement options, but some skill is needed to protect the crux as the stance is less comfortable than desired. The crux move may be a bit tricky to figure out right away, so we agreed on 5.6+ in the spirit of Gunks grading :o)))

Really enjoyed this route. I followed then led it, so I was able to find a key hold that made the crux stance far more comfortable on my lead attempt. The gear is all there, albeit small at the crux. This would feel 5.7 on an onsight attempt, but after finding the key holds it's in the 5.6 realm.
