Description Suggest change

If this thing were on the ground, it'd make for a great boulder problem, but unfortunately it's about 20 feet high, so you should probably rope up. Cinch Crack is the obvious, overhanging splitter (out a sort of roof/prow) low on Hawk-Eagle Ridge, just before the chimney downclimb that deposits you in the big gully by Wind Tower.

A fixed pin w/ some tat and a fixed Alien can be supplemented with trad pro. Hard moves and long reaches gain the lip. Head up the crack to a double-bolt anchor (1/4") or better yet, down climb and down aid to get your gear back.

This is Old school 5.12b, meaning hard as hell!

Protection Suggest change

This pitch is short so you don't need much. Metolius blue, yellow (double-up) orange and black to back up the fixed mank.
