Description 

This is a decent trad route on the left side of the Main Elk Crag. Follow an open dihedral system with some stemming to a ledge with some loose rocks. Negotiate a headwall that is a bit steeper than it appears from the ground to the anchors. Watch for loose rocks and blocks that could become dislodged. There was one or two that looked a bit dangerous when I was here.


Location 

It is one of the farthest routes to the left at the Main Elk crag. From where the trail meets the rock, hike left along the base of the cliff until you reach the obvious crack.

If this route is your first objective, a more direct way to get there is to follow the creek trail past the usual turn to the Main Elk Crag until you see an obvious mushroom-shaped rock in the creek on the left. About twenty feet past this there is a good trail on the right that leads directly to this climb.


Protection 

A rack of cams maybe with a few extras in the small to mid-sizes, nuts (the wired kind).
