East Coaster here was able to climb at Vantage this weekend with a friend. Climbed some unknown crack on the Coyote Wall. None of the descriptions on MP (or Yoder's guide) match what we climbed.

If you're coming from the dog chute towards Coyote/Sunshine wall it is about 50 feet from coming around the bend. Probably 100 feet to the right of Solar Therapy.

Anyway, the climb is a clean crack with juggy face holds, probably around 5.7 and two bolts on an awkward sloping ledge. The bolts were good, chains a bit rusty. We tried to keep going but it was extremely chossy above it. I thought maybe it was rock lobster, but I don't think I placed any micro gear... the crack took .3-1 C4 range. Oh and we didn't use the solar therapy anchor because we were so far to the right.

Any insight?

I'm hoping that a lot of these questions regarding "mystery" routes at Vantage will be answered via the new guidebook that I hear will be out this fall.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
