Description

This route is on the Chocolate wall around the corner (left) past some broken blocks from "Short Stack" (see that route for approach details). Climb the wide flake to the pillars top at about 20'. Continue up the handcrack and into a left facing corner/slab to rappel slings that need replacing.

Protection

Camalots 0.5-3.5; doubles for hand size.

Well worth the (short) walk. The "wide" flake is not too hard, and it protects with # 3 camalots and a #4 up high if you're lucky. From the top of the flake, its thin hands (occasional pod for #2-3 camalots) to the corner/slab, which then takes .4-.75 camalot sizes. I liked this route because of the variety: cups/fists, tight hands/ring locks with pods, and fingery layback to finish. Fantastico! At any rate, it's a real stretch to call this a "handcrack" as the description does. Apr 7, 2014
