Description

This is the obvious crack in the above photograph. Perhaps the hardest move is just getting off the ground. Near the top you can clip a bolt on the sport route left of this crack to protect a long traverse to the left, where you can reach the lip and easily pull to the top. This route is only about 50' long. There are 2 bolts west of the summit for a belay anchor and to rap down west.

Protection

Standard rack to 2".

I clipped the bolt at the top, then headed back right a couple of feet to finish on the arete. It's easy, pretty fun, and a much more direct finish to the climb than heading ten feet to the left and doing the traverse to the anchors. Sep 11, 2011

If finished by the bolt to the left of the arete and belly to that bolt, the move is probably 5.11a, and height-dependent. I am about of average height, if you consider my monkey-length arms, and I still had to deadpoint from a good edge and smears for feet to the top. Sep 10, 2006

....Bring some thin gear (small wires). From the base of the crack it looks like a hand crack, but after the first moves, it gets thin.

It's not so obvious what to do when you get to the ledge at the top of the crack. Going straight up is hard (11?). Walk left about 10 feet to a bush and up from there. You can get gear before pulling onto the next ledge. Back right to a two bolt belay.

We didn't like those two bolts for rappelling (rusty), and getting to the bolts at the top of Farniente looked hard, so we downclimbed the east side and descended as per Green Corner and Diagonal Finger Crack. Oct 27, 2002
