Simply a spectacular climb for the grade, Midnight Fright should be on everyone’s tick list. Go climb it! It is possible to top rope this route with two ropes, but the rope drag is tremendous.

Enjoy the stellar hand crack to a small stance. Step right and jam the flared fist-crack past the tree. Good offwidth moves lead to a slab and finally a live belay tree.


Find the crack system with the slender pine tree growing out of it.


Single rack to 4”, doubles in the 2-3” range
