Description

At the far left end of Supercrack Buttress, there is a tall and large left-facing crack system that starts thin and gets bigger as it rises to its 120' length. There is a section of questionable rock near the bottom, but the climb is good overall.

There is no particular crux, although I got worked in a section that once had a large loose block and sand behind it. (EDIT:) But this will not pull, I am told.

Protection

Mostly 2" to 3.5" cams (lots of them). Take a wide piece for the top (4") and a few smaller ones for near the bottom.

There is a small amount of loose stuff near the bottom of the pitch. This makes a few moves and placements a little ennervating, but the fall potential isn't too bad. Just try to avoid the loose block, particularly with your gear.
