About seven years ago, there was a pretty big rockslide, about a half mile above the mouth of Grand Wash, which covered highway 24 with Navajo sandstone debris for a few days. A newly exposed flake on the south wall revealed this nice little hands to offwidth splitter. In keeping with the current ban on new permanent anchors in the park (especially on a roadside crack such as this), I don't think that this will ever be much of a classic, must-do crack. Nonetheless, the location of this fine-looking splitter is so obvious that I'm sure many climbers have gawked at it while driving along highway 24, and perhaps a few have bouldered it. In the summer of 2002 I checked it out, finding some hidden jugs at the offwidth, and a kind of scary mantle onto the top of the flake at about 35 feet.


#2 to #4 camalots, no anchors. might be best just to boulder and downclimb it.
