  • Description 

    This isn't my route, but I stumbled up most of this today thinking I was doing Crack Tack. To complete the MP listing, I credit Bob's book, #59; as it is described well, but not drawn in the photo. (For fun, read my comment of Crack Tack.)

    This is a remarkable line, but runout for sure. Each crux has a well placed 1/4" bolt nearby, but the lichen suggests it isn't done much. It was too necky for me at each crux, but I could almost tell the moves were there, but got back left to Crack Tack to bypass both of them. My partner followed the line, a bit right after the 1st bolt, then up and back left to the 2nd, and I was impressed. You better be up for the runouts if you lead this and/or WAY tuned for the grade.

    Location 

    Start at Crack Tack, clip the first bolt,and then head rightish out into space shooting toward a 2nd 1/4" bolt at the final headwall and up to the anchor bolts on A Hike For Y2K. (I'll bet it gets TR'd more than led.)

    Protection 

    Small pro, if any, and 2 bolts. It's a long way to that 2nd bolt with spicy climbing. R/X (They look good, but they're vintage 1/4 inchers.)
