Description 

This small wall is located to the south and slightly uphill of The Zip, between that wall and Car Jack crag. Easily recognizable by the long corner with the #3/#4 camalot twin crack start (Fissureman's Friend) and a short, left leaning off fingers crack to ring bolt anchor followed by bolted sport pitch. Seems like a less traveled crag that could offer some solitude on busy days in the Bluffs.

Getting There 

If walking the gravel path from the parking lot to the Zip (walk out the parking lot to the road, past the company then left onto the path, heading south) take the left past the Zip and head uphill following the path to the first wall. Alternatively, you can get here from above by going downhill on a small path below Burgers and Fries and then North past High Cliff and Car Jack Crag.

Mossy Tongue 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  North America : Canada : ... : Island in the Sky
Fun slabby sport climb, shares anchors with The Kip. As I am not a local, tough to grade but 5.9 or 10a seemed right. Follow slab face straight through the bolt line, pulling over the bulge to the anchors on the left. Crux is before the first bolt on thin, but good edges. Bolt is high, so if nervous bring a stick clip. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
