Description Suggest change

The Left S-Crack is not S-shaped at all (then again, neither is the Right S-Crack). It sure is a lot of fun, though. Wide crack and stem moves down low get you to a slight rest about two-third of the way up. Then it's a great slightly-overhanging jug-fest to the top. There's no real crux section to this climb, and nothing's too hard, thanks to great hands that appear just as you need them. This is a great route to run laps on.

The climb starts a few feet to the left of my yellow and black pack that you can see in the picture. Follow a right-slanting crack/chimney until it peters out, then move left and up through the overhanging section to top out near the left edge of the formation.

2 stars out of 5.

Protection Suggest change

standard rack -- long slings may be helpful for the awkward anchor set-up on top
