Description

The obvious crack going straight (ok, a little bit left) up the middle of the crag. You can jam it, you can layback it, you can even climb it in the rain (makes the grade a little harder...). If you go on a nice weekend, there may already be some people with a rope on it so you won't even need to worry about finding it.

Protection

Standard trad rack to 2", bolted anchor at the top.

Short, but great route! Feb 9, 2006
Very fun and very consistent for its grade. You can also top rope this and the others next to it before trying your hand at the lead. Easy access to the road makes this popular on weekends. Apr 27, 2006

On 31 August 2011, the ASCA replaced the anchor with two 1/2x2.75" SS 5-piece bolts. Hangers and chain are camo'd. The old anchor took very little force to remove. Sep 4, 2011
Thanks for the new anchor! I just donated to ASCA last week. Apr 30, 2012

There's a fixed cam just shy of halfway up the route. Jul 10, 2017

Watch your rope. As soon as you get up to the slab section, it's easy to pull your rope deep into the vertical crack, walking all your cams deep inside or getting the rope stuck between a cam lobe and the wall. Make sure to keep that rope on the outside of the crack on the slab section. Jul 28, 2017

If you plan on top roping, I'd recommend placing a directional at the top of the crack. The swing on a fall will get ya. Aug 8, 2017

Patrick's comment (above) is right on. We also got a rope stuck at the top of the crack just as he describes. I would highly recommend extending your final piece before pulling onto the slab and take special care to keep your rope well to the right of the crack, as it was a bear for my partner to unstick... excellent climb though!
