Description

If big crack are your style, then enjoy this beauty. The crux is not technically difficult... just awkward... and comes mid pitch one.

P1: Begin with the initial moves of Belle Fourche Buttress. Continue up the wide crack to the top of the buttress. This is a 150 ft. pitch... SAVE THE GAS! Most parties rappel from the anchors here.

P2: Continue straight up to the large roofs. Traverse left a couple cracks and climb through the roof about 50 ft. to a large belay ledge.

P3 & 4: Same as Casper College.

Location

Between Burning Daylight and Belle Fourche Buttress.

Protection

Standard Tower rack with extra 3 & 4 inch pieces. Maybe even a #5 Camalot?

A #5 and #6 are certainly useful. If you didn't bring anything bigger than a number 4 the upper half would be very runout. Jul 3, 2016
