Description

Grab a 50 meter rope and head up to the beautiful crack called Crooked Cross. Hike up to the right of the rock, then scramble left to its base. Pitch one is about 120 feet and will get you to the base of the crack itself. Pitch one begins, as you look up, about 30 feet to the right of the crack, at the low point of the wall. It's a very moderate pitch, perhaps 5.5 or 5.6, and begins in a 20 foot long right facing, bushy dihedral. Work up to what appears to be rap slings, and bang a hard left, traversing easily to the base of the crack. Excellent cracks are there to set a belay.

The second pitch is shorter, and heads straight up a beautiful line (led by partner Scott S). You can see what you might need for pro from the bottom . . . it's a terrific pitch with excellent, grippy rock.

Enjoy it. The walk off is obvious.

Protection

Standard rack for the first very moderate pitch; medium size cams and stoppers for the second pitch crack. A few extras in this size might help. Excellent cracks at the top for anchors, and easy walk off. 50 meter rope is fine.
