Description

This is the obvious handcrack on the north face of Pebble Beach. It indeed has perfect hand jams for the first 25 ft, except for one short wide section, and then you thankfully get a rest in an alcove. Exiting the alcove out the right side is exciting. Unfortunately, the line deteriorates after this (thus only one star versus two) with possible exits right or left up dirty rock. You need to traverse(easy) to The Dan and Randy Show (Sedimental Journey in Rossiter) to get back to the ground.

Tape would be advised as my hands are still healing. Worth doing especially as it is atypical of what the Sacred cliffs have to offer (pebble pinching!).

Protection

SR with extra cams in hand sizes. Need to traverse top to get to fixed anchors for descent.

Not much reminder of I.C. for me, but it was a good jam crack. The slight flare is mitigated by the "toothiness" of the rock - wear tape gloves if you have soft skin. I'd give it 3 stars (considering the venue) if it were not for the low quality rock a the topout.

Fixed anchors are above 'Dan And Randy Show' and are 3rd class to reach from the top of this line- scramble 6 meters Southward on the ledge just West of the summit. Aug 9, 2009

Little taste of Indian Creek, sort of. It's short but when you have both feet and hands in the crack as you approach the pod it might remind you, briefly, of The Creek. After the pod it looks like better footholds traversing left but when I tried I pulled off a hand-sized flake and took a swing. Maybe that way won't looko so tempting anymore. It's straight up and then left out of the pod. I'd do this one again. It's kind of strenuous for being so short. Sep 12, 2005
