Description

This is a steep and wonderful crack littered with big jugs. This is also the site of the conception of ClimbingBoulder. To get there, continue up the West Ridge trail past Long John Wall for a couple hundred yards. You'll also pass the [prominent] R-facing dihedrals of Chianti and Break on Through. As the slope of the hill shallows out, look for a short cliff right next to the trail with several cracks. You've gone too far if the trail has departed the cliff bottom.

The route starts up the steep crack on the right side of the wall (5.9). After about 20 feet you can move left and up to a tree. Or you can go straight up through the crux (5.10a). Walk off to the left.

Protection

Small and medium nuts. Up to a #2 Camalot. 50 feet long. Can also take easy scramble from the left to set a top rope.
