Description

Up the chimney to the right of the alcove and Stinger. Use the chimney to gain a slab and traverse to the tree. Finish the route using the crack above your position at the tree. This one is easy, but real fun. The guidebook I used to find this climb recommends this as well; Please belay in a position that doesn't damage the tree.

Mandatory hand jam on a 5.4? It's easier than the mandatory jam(s) on Brinton's Crack but it's at least as hard as the climbing on Foreplay. Jun 15, 2015

walked a # 4 camalot up this crack. A little awkward, but worth climbing if only to get to the upper crack. Oct 27, 2011
