DescriptionThis large crack is near the middle of the Industrial Buttress (about 20 paces West of the 3rd Class gully that separates the MBA Buttress on the East and the Industrial Buttress to the West). The crack goes basically straight up, and then angles slightly left about half way up.
This is a great climb! From the first move to the last, the challenging moves in this crack just keep coming. The climbing is not obvious, which separates it from many climbs at Table. There are great jams, some interesting balancey face moves, and a fun off-width section about 3/4 of the way up. I would highly recommend the off-width, but my partner proved you can bypass the off-width on the face to the left with equally fun moves.
However..... There is some bad news with this climb. There is a major pile of pigeon shit deep in the crack about 10 feet up. It is best not to climb with your head in the crack at this point. A broom would work wonders for cleaning this area up.
I'm giving the first awkward move on this climb a 5.8, but the rest of the climb is 5.7 to 5.7+.
