Description

This is an attractive, left-slanting crack located in the center of the Blue Nubian Wall, which passes along the right side of a triangular block midway; the steep seam to the right is Conceptual Continuity (5.11c TR).

Start with fingers on a less-than-vertical face, then continue up the widening crack and over small roof/overlap (5.10a) as you pass the block on the right. Once past the block the climbing eases to the top. Gear belay and walk off to the climber's right.

Short but enjoyable, this seldom visited crack gets lots of sun in the afternoon but few crowds. One star out of five.

Protection

gear to 4" (an old-style, #4 purple Camalot was handy)

Did this a long time ago ('99?) but remember a couple of things. First, it's a little bit grainy/ballbearing in the crack at the crux (which I Iiebacked) and second, you'll need a big piece or two for the anchor...like a 3.5 or 4 camalot, as I recall nothing smaller will work up top. I don't remember using anything big on the route itself. Short, but worthwhile. One star. Mar 19, 2007
