Description

A classic for the area. A fun crack climb, although face holds exist as well. Follow the finger crack up into a dihedral and continue to the top.
  • RCM&W #44, p.214.

Location

This route is in the next corner down from Phantom Crack, and about 25 yards to the left from the stone lookout.

Protection

Nuts, cams, hexes for lead. Some large gear might be helpful for the top rope setup.
One of my favorite pitches in the North Shore. Classic. Oct 3, 2006

Plenty of pro and great jams. Long route so save a little pro (and energy for the top). Classic Route!
Climbed it with a storm approaching, 40 mph winds, whitecaps misting us from below, and a double rainbow forming behind us. One of my favorite climbing memories. Nov 29, 2012

I climbed this after a full day of rain which I think tipped it over to the unpleasant side of the fun/hard work dividing line. Many of the holds were still pretty wet and slimy. I'd like to do it again on a dry day. Either way this is a beautiful area to spend some time. Sep 7, 2014

This climb is located on the left of the two prominent dihedrals close to the parking lot and climbers left of the amphitheatre. The rope likes to stick in the crack at the top when rappeling. Good with a 60m from the wide crack that I anchored a #4, #3 and #1.

The crack has a tenuous smooth wide fingers section, but otherwise it hosts some decent hand jams, however, not a lot of true foot jams. An okay climb but not continuous hand crack like I had hoped. Aug 22, 2017
