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


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.


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

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
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
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
