Description

This is actually a 20-foot variation finish to Crack Love II; and a good one it is. Climb Crack Love II to the roof where the main route goes offwidth and fist. Pull 5 feet left beneath the roof and place gear, then make a very strenuous move to clear the roof and get established in the crack above (crux). Good hand and finger jams continue to the top of the wall and the anchor for Crack Love II.

It must be noted that Bruno Hache busted his butt cleaning this system and is commended and thanked for his hard work and contribution to the routes of Avalon.

Location

This route is located on the upper left Northeast Face of Avalon. Follow the excellent trail beneath the Northeast Face to its low point beneath Ancient Light. Continue up the slope past two switchbacks to the obvious alcove and V-slot of Crack Love. Crack Love II/III is the crack system on the right.

Protection

Gear only from 0.4 inches to 2.5 inches.
