Shari leading the crack


After the big corners pitch belay. then move left on horizontal ledge to a shall 3" crack that is 30ft long. Crack is a disappointment in that it is (5-6) or easier. after crack move up low angle ledges to find a belay.


Dickey Ledge- Above and left of the big corners.


Medium to medium large trad gear. crack has 2 bolts.

The start to the crack and the crack itself is not very clean. The 2 bolts are on the traverse out left to the crack, there is a new bolt now before the 2 old ones
