Description Suggest change

The 3 crack climbs, Ghost Ship, Ship of Fools, & Mystery Tour (aka Crack Land Dihedral) begin from a common system and branch to individual lines after the first 25 feet. Begin about 10 feet left of Mystery Ship and follow vague, blocky terrain to where the lines diverge (5.6, gear to 1 inch, 25 feet). All 3 lines top out at the belay tree for Dragon Slayer. Lower off or rappel 90 feet from slings with rings. Extensive cleaning and trail work have been done to provide access to these excellent crack climbs.

These routes are located on the NW corner of the Third Tier of Avalon, just left of Mystery Ship. This is actually the far right side of the NE Face, perhaps 100 feet right of Ancient Light.

Ship of Fools: Climb a right-facing corner to a small roof, pull right and jam a perfect hand crack to where it narrows. Continue up difficult terrain to a horizontal break. Step right and climb a flared crack to the alcove at the top of Mystery Tour. Climb a short crack on the left wall and gain a good ledge and the belay tree for Dragon Slayer.

Location Suggest change

This is the middle of the three cracks in the Crack Land Dihedral. Begin 10 feet left of Mystery Ship.

Protection Suggest change

Nuts and cams from 0.5 inches to 3.5 inches. Lower off or rappel 90 feet from slings with rings around a tree.
