  • Description 

    Good route for begining leaders, as the moves are secure and there is ample opportunity for protection. Like McCrumm's Crack, however, the amount of chipmunk crap you must pass by makes this otherwise reasonably good route unpleasant.

    Climb the East bench Dihedral to reach the slot between the first [pinnacle] and the East bench. Move far left out of the slot between the East Bench and the First [Pinnacle] to a left-facing left leaning corner and up to the summit via this system. Climb upward to the summit on big holds.

    Descend by scrambling West and then North or by rapping from one of the several fixed anchors up top.


    Protection 

    A few [pieces] of this and that including a few large [pieces], + a few long slings for slinging knobs and threading holes.
