Unknown 5.6 (February 2014)

Description 

This dihedral climb protects well, with mostly no-hands clipping stances. Fun stemming leads to hand jams and jugs. Some loose/hollow-sounding rocks, but nothing too scary. The final 10 feet are overhanging with beautiful jugs.

Location 

This crack is in the dihedral just left of the first three bolt lines encountered at the Main Wall. Starts on a ledge, and leads up to an overhang with chains on the left side.

Protection 

Standard rack up to 3" will more than cover your needs. There is a "fixed" cam halfway up. Chains with new bolts at the top.

Really fun climb, but I feel that there are some moves that require a bit more thought and care than a 5.6 would normally require. This climb is a bit steep, but you really just have to watch your feet (it's almost all stemming).

Super fun climb that takes great gear all the way. There are actually two fixed cams on this route and while it would take up to a #3 Camalot you can sew this thing up with just a set of stoppers. Would make a great first trad lead.
