DescriptionThe crux of this crack is low to the ground and is passed quickly- if you can protect overhead, this makes it a reasonable lead to push your grade on.
There are 3 obvious cracks on the E. Face of the Peyote Cracks Wall, The center of these starts with a slightly overhanging odd jam and proceeds upwards to easier territory. The climb protects from the ground and then again at the crux to make the leader pretty safe. Climb up on awkward moves (5.9 crux) to reach a lower angle jam crack above (5.6?) and proceed to the top.
The anchor up top requires cams of various sizes and a long coralette or webbing.
