About three quarters way up the West Ridge just past an area devoid of good rock is the Cirque Of Cracks. One of the highlights of this area is the route Parallels (junk rock on its left and 2 more excellent looking thin crack looking lines to its right). None of these routes employ a lot of crack climbing but Parallels has the most...The guide gives it a "s" rating but I think its actually a safe lead. You do have to bust a move at the crux before placing a piece...Then only slightly run out on easier terrain to the anchor.

A newly replaced anchor awaits at the top...The next two routes to the right use the same anchor but are in need of their own!


0.4"-1.25" cams, 2 bolt anchor.
