This is a fun climb. It begins out of a little pod on the left side of the crag. Climb up the wide crack left side in. Keep palming, smearing, back-stepping, and heal-toeing for what seems like forever (60M on the button). There is usually a good smear, or pebble out on the face every once in a while for a good rest, and good progression. The crux is probably in the beginning of the wide-ness, and/or the sustained nature of the climb.

Walk to the climber's right from the top to a gully(60-70??). Scramble 40 feet to the chockstones, these chockstones are at the top of the climb Cruiser, and South Side Johnny. Rappel to back to boulder hopping with one rope from a slung chockstone.


The guidebook says pro to 4 inches. That would build an anchor at the top of the climb, but, be useless except for one placement. This climb is 200 feet of non-stop wide crack (10-24 inches or so). Long pants, and long sleeved shirt nice.

What do you mean here regarding pro? You can only get one piece of pro the entire pitch? Doesn't sound like even a #4 big bro would fit. Oct 14, 2003

George, It is quite wide for the vast majority. At about maybe 40- 60 (?) feet somewhere, you can get a small cam (0.5, or 0.75 cam in a crack on the face behind you as you are climbing). It's a fun climb in a scenic area. We thought we were on "Prairie Dog Crematorium" until we got another look at the topo. Oct 15, 2003
