Start on neighboring route Wide Crack, then move out to the bolts that lead right into the dike, past a tree, and up a deep crack to the top.


Same as Wide Crack, traverses right above an overhang to a dike.


Bolts, standard rack

The bolted traverse on this climb is NOT indicative of Adirondack ethic and tradition.

Even slower to dry than Wide Crack.
