Description 

Located at the Eastern end of the Horse Rampart (the last climb on the continious cliff line before Teetering Tower), this jam crack poses interisting moves that will have you wondering why you havn't found this rout at the lake earlier.


Protection 

Good anchor for top rope and well protected crack placements for trad

One of the few real jam cracks at the lake. Gets off-withdy at the top, probably #4 Camalot will suffice.

prob one of the best cracks ive climbed at the lake...funny thing is the guide book did not even have this climb named...visually it looks just as good as it climbs...worth racking up for!!

damn andy you are right...i re-looked in my guide book today and it makes sense...there is an un named 5.7 near rogers roof that i mistook this climb for...straight up good crack climbing tho and the ofwidth at the top is a lil heady climbing past your #4 to the top out!

I named that unnamed 5.7 "Wolf Dog" on MP. Just right of "AAA".
