Decent warm-up route that that is probably easier than the 5.10 rating assigned to it. The start is loose-fingers or tight-hands and quickly goes to good hands. There are also face features to make it easier. After the hands section the crack pinches down and then finish to the anchors in another loose-fingers or tight-hands crack. Pretty fun, but not up to typical IC standards.


Route starts on the right side of the buttress. It is one to the right of Railroad Tracks and a little before Three Strikes You're Out.


Camalots from green to gold should be sufficient.

I found two brand new quick draws at that anchors on this route. Describe them, and you can have them back.

One of the anchor bolts was hanging partway out of the hole spring 07'. This climb sucks anyway. Watched a girl almost deck from the top of this pile. She was placing a piece in the upper crack when she fell, bounced off the ledge and sailed head-first toward the ground to be stopped 5' above the ground and slammed face-first into the corner. The piece that caught her was a green camalot. It broke out a couple of inches of rock and had only two lobes left in the crack. Yikes!

Rating is closer to 5.8 than 5.10. Barely mediocre climbing considering the classic routes that abound on this cliff.

Does anyone know if there is a second OW pitch that goes to the top of the large pillar?

Climbed this rout yesterday, fun/nothing spectacular, however it gives you a good angle to take photos of folks climbing Railroad Tracks.

I have always called this Guides Crack. I don't know where I heard it but since it doesn't have a name... ? Well, just a thought at least.
