Description [Suggest Change]

Crack system that is easily protectable. This climb has nice rock and is a great lead to work out your pro skills just like they did in the 1960's

Location [Suggest Change]

Christian's ascends the crack system on the right side of the west face just left of where the face "rolls" around to the south face.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Mixed size crack pro. Try it without cams. Bolts on top.

Does this climb actually exist? To the right of the overhang we saw what looked like class 3-4 scrambling to a 10' zig-zagging crack that was filled with vegetation. It looked awfully unaesthetic. Jul 30, 2013
I was wondering the same thing. I explored most of that face today and found about one variation that had about 3 moves of 5.5. Everything else seemed 4th class. To the right (almost to the bushes) is a little 5.4 dehidral that is pretty neat, but there's no crack in it, so still not sure what exactly is Christian's Crack Jan 3, 2015
Turns out it is a tad farther right than I was thinking. It's completely under moss and trees right now. I cleaned it up a bit while soloing up, and thought it would actually pretty good if it hadn't been lost to time. Jul 2, 2015
