Description

Amaranth is a perfect, short, finger crack.

Amaranth is located on the SW side of Plumb Line Crag. It is on the lower tier of the Crag and is located about 100 feet to the left of the distinct Plumb Line hand crack and about 40 feet left of Barley. The climb follows a thin crack up a left-facing corner. The crack widens at the top but does not require any offwidth climbing. You will need to boulder about 10 feet up to a ledge at the base of the finger crack. Beware of a thorn bush on the ledge, and beware of a potentially loose block if you scale up on the right side of the ledge. The block is balanced on its end, and you don't want to yard on it and pull it down onto your partner. Set up the belay in some large boulders perched on the crag's middle terrace.

To exit, scrambble off to your right (East) staying high on the terrace until you are on the East side of the crag. Alternatively, there are bolted anchors on the large boulder just above the Plumb Line crack that can be used for a rappel.

Protection

A light rack with small-to-medium cams. A #4 Camalot will protect the last move out of the wider section at the top.

Closer to forty feet, really. Not really worth going to plumb line specifically for. Sep 27, 2010
