DescriptionThe Wonder Bluffs is an east-facing wall split by many crack systems, some of which are quite good.
Near the far right side of the wall and 5' right of an obvious left-facing corner is this straight-in crack which starts thin (crux) and slowly widens higher. The descent is either a walkoff to the climber's right or a rap from bolts located in the middle of the wall.
A nice place to escape the mobs found at so many easily approached crags. This is a good wall to work on crack skills with several other good routes nearby. It can get cold here in the winter if the wall is shady, but it is usually quite nice.
