If you love handjams and love crack climbing, this climb is actually easier than the 5.7 to the left (Rentier). Jul 16, 2013

I must not love hand jams or crack climbing (actually I know this), cause I found Rentier to be much much easier. Maybe it was the 90 degree day but the inside of the crack was slick as hell. I'm pretty sure I did better on One for the Road (10d). Jul 21, 2013

I tried this climb on TR when I was first learning how to climb. Flailed all over the place. I think I might have even punched the rock a few times. -not a good thing to make a habit of- Fail. Didn't make it up.
Finally made it back out to Tahoe a few years later and nailed it.
This crack loves gear. Take something a bit bigger for the top.

Great Climb! Have Fun.

On a side note, the crew next to us decided it would be a great idea to take a 24 pack up to the crag to drink and climb. I don't know about you, but I like to do my drinkin' after I climb. We didn't stick around to see how it turned out. Hopefully OK.
And hopefully this is not the standard for this crag...? Sep 25, 2013

Sustained 5.8 for the first half of the climb, then 5.5-ish for the second half. Jul 8, 2017

Great crack. Fist, fingers, arms jams galore. Easy to find and easy to setup a top rope. Highly recommended for beginners like myself who have run laps on their home gym cracks but are eager to test their stuff outdoors. As always, go with someone who has experience to critique your anchors. Lots of rope drag too, bring a thick one. Oct 30, 2018
