Description

This is the crack left of the Crucible. It is a finger crack found inside a shallow dihedral. Mount this climb via a jug flake at the bottom and work your way into the crack. Crux near the bottom. When I flailed on this 17 years ago some "old" cat said it required one to rotate 180 degrees progressing upwards. I think he hoping we'd try that and get a laugh. Not as popular as the Crucible, but a worthy exercise.

Location

After cresting the road to the summit, continue west down the road through the city of antennas. Just as the last antenna is past by, this route and its good looking sister the "Crucible" are found on the boulder to ones left.

Protection

TR, bolts

Awesome climb!! For the anchor you can get a #3 BD behind the pole and a #2 and #1 in front of the pole also maybe a .75 in the front of the pole.. Pull it all together with a cord and you'll be set.. Apr 21, 2014

I found this really awkward throughout. No bolts near the top of this (the bolt(s) are located for Crucible and would be a groundfall swing if you fell anywhere in the bottom 1/3 of this). If you're rigging a TR, beware that the metal pole directly above this is not sitting in concrete. The stuff just below the surface shell around the pole is a weird type of foam...so back if up...you can place some hand sized stuff. Feb 5, 2009

Try scissoring your feet, I found that works well. Near the top I even got both feet on the left wall for a bit. Mar 16, 2008

Man! This is a great climb! I do this just about every time I do the Crucible. There's no 180 degree thing required. There are a couple of hard moves right off of the ledge. Mar 11, 2006
