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.

Climb the gently left-leaning 5.7 crack system finishing at a chain anchor to the left once you come over the top. Feet will be mostly slab features for the first 2/3rds of the climb. Crack starts shallow but gets deeper after a few moves. At the time of posting this, the crack was a bit dirty--the area is still clearly under development. Definitely a hidden gem of a climb. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
