Description

As you approach the area, you'll see several blocks near each other. Baserkerville Rock is the leftmost of these formations. This route follows the crack furthest to the right on Baskerville Rock. Face climb for 15 feet until you reach a stance where one can place bomber pro. This is where the crux begins. The beauty of this route is that you'll get great stances to place gear, but the climbing never really eases off either. Enjoy!

Decent: downclimb on the backside through the chimney/chasm thing, not for the beginner down-climber. Expect 5.5ish chimney moves.

Protection

finger-size pro to 0.75 inches. If you want gear on the slab down low, micro-offset nuts can fill that gap. Large gear (2-3 inches) helpful for the belay or TR anchor.
