Description

Probably the most jammable crack at The Gorge. Great hand jams on sticky rock all the way up. The top gets a little wide, but not too bad. I would liken it to an easier version of The Robbins Crack. It is slightly longer than Robbins too! Would be an area gang-roped classic if its location were more obvious.

There are at least two other climbs on the same rope for a TR. Make sure your rope does not get pinched in the top of the crack like another's has. There was a bee hive near here not long ago, watch out for them.

Location

At the top of the hill. Really it's own area. Head uphill past Monkey Dance and Standard Deviation. This is just right of Turkey Chute and you will end up passing the top of this climb. Head to the top of the hill to a pinnacle with an obvious hand crack. You can see this pinnacle on the skyline from the road.

Protection

Cams 0.5 to #3 make this route well-protected. Set a gear anchor (I used BD #3, 0.75, and 0.5), walk off back.
