This is the thin crack to the left of the wider crack Dinkey Doinks. This is on the east/northeast face. A beautiful crack that eases off after the crux at the bottom.


Takes small to medium nuts and cams. large pro for the anchor.

Really good route. Easy to fish in a nut to protect the first moves. I was too short to place the nut, but managed to get it in with a few shenanigans. Once established on the route, I thought 10b was fair for the opening 20' or so. Good gear the whole way, but expect to have to explore a bit. Hand size to #4 for anchor. Easy walk off down the left.

Looks somewhat improbable when looking at it dead on. From the base and quick glance up you may find that the gear, albeit small is available. Small cams & nuts which should seem obvious but found more hand size placements than I was anticipating and a perfect slot for a #2 camalot just for kicks. Gear anchor just like it's neighbors can range anywhere from 1.5-4". Nov 21, 2013

TR'd this which is worth doing if you can't lead this grade. Great climbing! Oct 22, 2012
A very nice route but not a letter grade harder than Taxman. Mar 31, 2012

Ditto what Locker said, but maybe more like the bottom of the route all the way up! Anyway, really had fun on this route. Mar 18, 2011

I really enjoyed this route. Any longer and it would bump up to 4 stars in my book. Jan 4, 2010

I climbed this again recently and found the moves getting up to the horizontal to be in the 10b range. Beyond that, fairly consistent 5.9 climbing to the top. As Chris says, looping your rope around the block works great for an anchor. Apr 25, 2006

The move off the deck is easy - after which there is some technical stuff to the horizontal crack which in my opinion merits a 5.10b rating. A high quality route on steep rock with very nice moves.

Once again the rope can be hitched around a convenient block for a belay. Or is this a dying art? Apr 24, 2006

The whole grade route feels like 5.9 or 5.9+, really. Lots of stoppers will go in this thing too. I sewed it up the whole way, continously anticipating a 5.10 crux move that never appeared. Jan 11, 2004

A real nice route. only one questionable 5.10 move at the start. the rest of the route is 5.9 May 5, 2003
