The right crack of the routes located just around the corner and uphill (to the east) of the buttress with Huston Crack and Aid Crack at Cob Rock. This one climbs a short left-facing dihedral to a slabby offwidth/fist crack. This is actually a very good climb to practice offwidth techniques on, and quite fun. But there's no anchor, so the walkoff reduces its appeal. Seldom climbed, but worthwhile.


Set of cams, heavy on fists/big stuff (#3 and #4 Camalots are good).


I might give it 5.6, but 5.7? Nah. Not really worth the annoying descent. Jan 23, 2002
Definitely 5.6. The offwidth sections don't take #3 Camalots (didn't bring any 4s, but those should work). But, there's a hand crack to the right that does take normal gear (probably 5.6 also). Slap some gear in that crack, climb down a bit, and practice those arm bars! From the top, follow a very loose path up to the left and rap from a tree. Leave a TR anchor and do the dirty, parallel finger cracks that follow the rap line (5.10?). Jul 18, 2002

I'm amazed this route was given two stars here. It's a good warm up, but that's about it. Indistinction(5.8), which is to the left of Right Crack, is a much better route. Jul 29, 2002

This route is also fun. Rack: (BD) cams #s 1-3 and a #9 or a 10 stopper climbed on 5/17/07- 1 pitch (60m). Jul 10, 2007

There are slings on a tree around the left corner for a 60 foot rappel. Sep 13, 2010

The rap station has great slings but only one, razor thin aluminum ring. Wouldn't hang my doubts on that dog. Somebody PLEASE invest some damn pocket change and back that shit show up with a lock link.

(IIIII will if'n I ever do that side of CR again....) Jul 17, 2011

This one is not a walkoff. There are two reasonable pitons with good weapon on the date of this post. Aug 14, 2016
