One of the classic forks tips cracks. Start just right of the Prow OW, at a thin crack in broken rock. Climb this finger crack (5.10+) to a ledge. Move to the left side of the ledge, then up the clean steep tips crack in a tight stemming or layback corner. Eats up green Aliens/.3 Camalots. Some people move left into a slightly wider (yellow Alien?) splitter crack. 5.11+ either way.


Just right of the OW at the base of the prow at a thin crack in chunky rock.


2 each to #1 Camalot, 1 #2 Camalot, with 4 or 5 green Alien size. I place 4, but 5 might be nice for an onsight attempt.

As with everything people have different suggestions, My gear list is usually 1 green alien (I use a red BD C3), heavy in blue BD microcams (0.3) and grey BD microcams (0.4) and then 2 0.5 camalot jr, and 3 0.75 camalot jrs and no (0) 1.0camalots (red) May 10, 2007

Woops, looked a little closer, deleted my last comment.

The line labeled '20' in the Falcon Guide is indeed in the wrong place. From the ledge Mutiny traverses off left and goes up the tips corner. The seam that goes straight up where the book shows Mutiny is very hard, probably 5.12ish, harder than Sail Away I thought. Not sure if it's been led or not. Sail Away goes up from the right side of the ledge. May 22, 2008

I think the start of this climb (from the ledge) is HARD! It seems made for those with smaller fingers. After this, the left crack seems slightly easier to me, good finger locks, then back to the right crack for an easier finish. Jun 22, 2009

Left crack then right crack ?
All I remember is a pretty clean continous corner.
Definetely smalls tips help for the first 20-30 feet.
Get starting gear, go up get one or two placements higher, come down, shake out and start running for it. Stop once (maybe twice) and get something in and the go for the bucket stem ! Once you hit the stem, it's in the bag. Not that it's a give away above that but if you can get there, you can finish. (assuming you're not totaly blown.) Jun 24, 2009

Yes Paul, right crack, then left crack, then back to the right crack, all in the corner. Scroll up and read the route description. My friends with small fingers generally stay in the (smaller) right crack.

I agree that once you get the nice stem it gets much easier. Jul 14, 2009

Am I the only one who bails left into the locker finger crack and just stays there? Jul 17, 2009

I think it depends on if you lay the thing back or stem weather you use the left crack. If laying back good luck getting out of it before the "bucket stem", and once your there you don't need the left crack. This thing is sick!! Aug 14, 2009
straight up is the way! right crack is the real bounty! yeah dustin! Apr 17, 2010

Heads up to anyone getting on Mutiny there is a rather large colony of bats residing in the upper section of the headwall crack. There is also a good amount of feces and urine accompanying them...Hopefully soon they will stop hang doggin' the route! Jul 2, 2012

Just note that the rack description above does not include the first 30ft of the climb. Bring an extra 2 purple c3s, a .3, and a .5 for the whole climb. You want all the small shit you can get. The left finger crack (11c/d) is slightly easier than the corner (11d/12a) Apr 3, 2013
There is a challenging variation to this line that adds about a number to the grade. At the pod towards the top of the left crack, move left around the arete to a seam with face holds. Make a difficult move up the seam to easier climbing. It protects with doubles of red sliders, grey C3s, and purple C3s. Jul 10, 2018
