|Sport Utility Wall
There is a crack that splits the wall between Wrangler Girls and Bland Cherokee that we've been climbing for a few years now; don't know who first ascended the route so we've been calling it Kelly's Crack. If there is a first ascensionist, by all means, claim your crack! There are two distinct cruxes, a bulge at the bottom (moving off the ledge at the start) that requires imaginative feet, and the roof at the top of the route. Great protection throughout! Wear a helmet as we tend to pull off a little bit of rock here and there.
Start at the cave (the bottom of Bland Cherokee), move up onto the ledge and have fun! Parties can rappel from anchors of Wrangler Girls, or walk off.
Gear route. Save gear for anchors as there are no fixed bolts.

Very cool climb. Set up as a TR from natural anchors up top. Next time I'll bring the trad gear for this one.

I learned to lead sport at this crag and finally got a chance to lead this route with gear. Absolutely my favorite route at this crag. If it were longer I'd even think about four stars. Its a great mix of hand jams and stemming to make a radical 5.8 route.
