Description

Obediah is located down on the right end of the wall where you'll find a striking finger crack in black rock (usually chalked).

Climb the finger crack (crux) then up easier ground to a ledge on the right. A handcrack leads up and left to a sort of in-your-face wide crack. Continue to the top, following cracks right up the exposed arete. Excellent route!

Protection

Nuts, cams from 0 TCU up to #3 Camalot size.

For even more fun, finish this climb on Sexual Deviations. Step right under the big roof at top and pull over with hands and fists. (5.10+) Mar 22, 2006

You don't actually climb the fingercrack so much as you climb around it. I was disappointed on that front, the rest of the route is unique and exposed. Well worth doing. Apr 27, 2008

While I agree with Greg that there is some climbing "around it" at the finger crack, there were also a couple crucial finger locks that were absolutely essential in completing the upper part of the finger portion. I thought it was loads of fun, but I am relatively inexperienced with 5.9 finger cracks--this was my first such onsight. Woohoo! Jun 10, 2013

A classic route! The initial finger crack is delicate but easier then other 9's Ive done at the Overlook. Feb 23, 2014
