Directly under The Slaves crack.


This is an obvious hand crack through an overhanging wall on the left side of Apple Cider Wall. The crux comes about halfway up at a bulge. It is a little dirty, but it is still a very good route.


This is on the left side of Apple Cider Wall with large rocks at the base. There is a tree with slings around it at the top.


Cams up to 3", some larger sizes could be useful.

One of the better crack climbs around Durango. No move is that hard, just kinda thuggish overall. Does get a little sandy with rain, but it is East A.

Currently my fav trad route at East A. - short, stout, get your pump on, and get ready for Creek season.
