The Last Calico
BETA PHOTO: Starts in obvious crack and stays right for 110' f...
Furthest route to climbers right. This great looking line climbs a series of of right-leaning cracks. Expect to encounter everything from finger crack to off width on this sustained and entertaining line. Many minor variations can be done depending on exactly which crack you decide to follow and when.
After topping out and bringing up the second, there is still about 60 feet of scrambling on easier class 4 ground before reaching the descent ridge/trail. Once on this ridge head right and look for cairns.
200' right and slightly higher than Classic Crack of Calico
Single rack to 5", double 2"-4"

Was on it years ago, rope stretcher and crux is thin if i remember correctly.
Lots of loose rock at the top, and getting down is a nightmare unless other anchors have appeared somewhere around the top or perhaps i missed them.
The mid-height anchors are new since i was there and should be fun.
With this now posted, hopefully it will clean up a bit, great route and hope it will get climbed more.
Thanks for posting and photos

This is one of my favorite climbs I've done on Kraft Mtn so far. The climb presented me with pretty much every style of crack climbing, with the exception of chimneys. Really cool moves that keep on coming. Don't be discouraged by the descent it is well worth the extra effort. Also don't skimp on the gear because it'll get used.
