Description

The Rack can be found to the right of the obvious chimney on the east end of Two Pines Buttress. It is easily identified by looking for the right-curving overhang/crack. Start the climb by using ledges to make your way up to the crack. Jam the crack up to where it turns to the right. From here traverse right with hands in the crack and feet smearing. Once you get to the end of the crack (near the corner) mantel up to the ledge, then continue up the south-facing corner and face to the top.

The Rack doesn't get the attention it deserves, I've been just as guilty as anyone, but I'm going to try to fix that situation in the future. Aug 14, 2017
No pro as you step out left and climb the corner blocks from the middle platform above the curving crack. Great head game climb on lead. Cheers May 22, 2015

Easy to walk past this one, but it's a great lead. Apr 18, 2014

the beginning of the route is the best...after the first 20' the route more or less becomes an adventure climb to top... good lead...slung a tree for pro Sep 1, 2010

No good pro after the crack and mantle for a few moves. Gets a little exposed (For DL) there too! Jun 3, 2010

This is a super fun route. Huge holds the whole way with great movement except for the slightly awkward mantle. Jul 9, 2009
I chose the RACK for my New Solo Setup for its curved start which would test my rig and its nice ledges toward the top - also the last move is very interesting. Aug 25, 2002
