Description [Suggest Change]

This is a fun, short trad climb just to the left of Joint Venture. Rolofson calls it 5.8; Rossiter 5.7. Regardless, it follows the obvious crack/dihedral up to a set of anchors you can easily see from the base of the cliff. The protection is good, the climbing is fun. A nice change of pace from the more rigorous bolted routes on this lower cliff.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Set of cams up to 3.5 will work fine, and you can add a set of stoppers too. Smaller cams at the start were helpful. Bolted anchors at the top from which you can rap.

Fun route with great pro and positive edges all of the way to the top. Well worth the effort if you brought trad gear. An easy way to set up a top rope on Joint Venture. Nov 21, 2005

I didn't see anything resembling 5.8 on this climb, quite unremarkable. Maybe if you hauled your rack up and everything else was already being climbed you could get on this route. May 1, 2008

Short but fun. It is easier than Crack Corner (the other trad climb just to the left of it) in my opinion. Sep 27, 2008

A set of nuts and cams to 0.75 is more than enough gear.... Oct 10, 2015

Fun beginner trad route. Definitely didn't need up to a 3 in cams but did well w/ a full set of nuts. Plenty of places to rest and double-check gear placement. Pretty short considering nearby routes. May 30, 2017

Fun 5.7. A couple of loose blocks on the left half way to the anchor. This one felt easier than Crack Corner further left. Jul 17, 2017
