Rachel Cutlip Near the top of Unholy Mackerel.


Start about 8 ft. right of Holy Mackerel crack. climb the face up small ledges and crimps to a vertical crack. Make a long move to a good edge and finish up on the big belay ledge to a set of shared ring anchors for Holy Mackerel.


just to the right of the Holy Mackerel Crack


Bring small TCUs or purple to red C3s to protect the crux. A bomber #1 C4 just below the crux will probably keep you off the deck if your gear pops, good pro returns after the difficulty. This route is best done on toprope after leading Holy Mackerel.
