Description

This is a so-so route that starts good and interesting, with 5 meters of very nice jamming. Too bad it doesn't go on like that the whole way....

Climb up the right-leaning handcrack (2"-3.5") on solid jams for 5 meters through a decent bulge, just right of the Bull Fight Wall. After 8 or 9 meters, sling a tree with a 4" trunk and climb up and out on some cracks with smaller gear. Finish on a 2 bolt anchor with chains, 50' from the ground.

Location

Just Right of the Bull Fight Wall, this climb is marked by its beginning--the obvious, right-leaning handcrack.

Protection

Gear 2"-3.5" for the initial handcrack, a long sling for a small tree, then smaller cams and nuts up above, to a 2-bolt anchor.

Photos

Tony's description is accurate. The photo in the D'Antonio guidebook is not accurate. The line up Salisbury Steak Crack is labeled as being Cow Patty Crack. Cow Patty Crack (accurately illustrated here on MountainProject) is around the corner to the right, not visible in the D'Antonio photo. Nov 14, 2012

The first 15-20 feet of this route are a whole lotta fun! It's worth it just for the handcrack at the bottom! Jun 10, 2018
