Making the moves on the crimpy lower crux. Photo ...

  • East Mountain is accessed by Guided Tour Only
  • Some areas require a guide.

  • Description 

    A hard start on crimps takes you up the initial face to where you can move left into the flake and over the higher landing platform. Follow the flake as it angles up and left above the higher landing area. At the end of the flake pull up to the sloping lip and make tough and intimidating moves onto the slab above.

    The top out on this problem is not your typical Hueco Tanks finish, no jugs up there.


    This problem climbs the obvious flake line in the middle of the Ginsu Wall which is the centerpiece of the area. Starts from a stand down and to the right of the platform that many of the lines start from, just left of the right arete


    Pads and spotters, you will probably want a pad or two down low for the starts and a couple more at least up on the platform for the top out.
