Description 

This thin corner crack offers mediocre gear, uninspiring feet, and plenty of sand, moss, etc. If you like scaring yourself on dirty, poorly protected, short lines, then Lucky Charms is for you.

Begins in the right-facing dihedral uphill and to climber's left of OGM, and follows the dirty finger crack upward, trending eventually rightward to finish at the ledge below Crack of Doom.


Location 

The result of a freshman routefinding error, we stumbled on Lucky Charms while looking for the start to Old Grey Mare. Begins in the right-facing dihedral uphill and to climber's left of OGM, and follows the dirty finger crack up.

Crack of Doom makes a wonderful finish to this unpleasant start.


Protection 

Gear to 2", including some small stuff.

I think this is pretty fun and not too dirty by Wa. standards. A good way up to the routes to the left of crack of doom.
