Excellent Hands splitter. Pass a flared section about 15' up, then jam through the crux bulge. Great jams from bottom to top. Only complaint is that it's not longer.
Right above the Idaho boulders. Very obvious splitter as seen from the trail--can't miss it. Treebeard is the 5.8 crack around the corner an uphill to the left.
Hands. #2 camalots, one or two #3 camalots. Either a #1 camalot or a mid-large stopper for the top. 2 bolt anchor.

This is a super-fun route. Probably not as hard as WMA who's crux is thin hands, this has a big hands crux. A must do for he gearhead.

Great route! Nice sustained 5.9 climbing with a few good rests in between. The view from the top is amazing.

So far my favorite trad route at the ranch. As with any crack, the experience varies depending on your hand size, but it felt like a sustained 5.9+ to me past the first 15ft or so. Good practice for cupped hands and elbow jamming.

5.9+??? Great feet outside the crack to the crux then its just beautiful tight hands. The difficulty of this route is comparable to The Bastille Crack in Eldo which is 5.7 just for reference. one of AR's best cracks for sure

Super good. However, it feels more solid of a 5.9 if you got smaller hands.
