This is located in the Cirque De Cracks on West Ridge (look at "Pool of Blood" for area description). It gets three stars, since there's nothing bad about it at all, just a fun and easy off-width. It's different from most off-widths, because you are using small edges most of the time that aren't even in the main crack.

Begin in the corner at the large off-width where the two walls join. Climb straight up and through to the tree with rap slings. I would imagine this to be a great climb for a beginner trad leader.


A mixed bag. You can be creative enough to bring anything. It can take some huge pro if you put it directly in the crack (up to a #4), or a bunch of micro cams if you choose the small cracks throughout the sides of the route. I found medium to large stoppers helpful.
