Climb the obvious crack, and top out on slopes 20-30 feet off of the ground. a thrilling climb with 'a stimulating finish,' to say the least. very aesthetic!


the tall band across from the main wall. this wall hosts some delicate and balancy slab problems, however its bad landing makes it a tough candidate for climbing.


i couldn't get a pad to cover the deep abyss of jagged dead trees below. do not get on this unless you are comfortable topping out on slopes and dirt/loose tree roots with terrible protection below. rather unsafe, due to a terrible landing. lots of loose rock. a fall from the top of this would be very bad.

This could be the 'Red and Black Crack' referred to by Steiger in his 1985 guide, although I had trouble matching the description to the climb itself.
