Description

Wide crack about 40' left of the "Direct" start of Crepes Corner (also known as the Cuisinhart for it's razor like nature).

A bit crusty but good for the novice wide leader. Protects well with just a few wide pieces.

Location

Obvious wide crack near Lunch Ledge. Scramble off to Crepes, or climb Wind/Shelob's Lair to continue. Rappel is possible, too.

Protection

To 4" or bring a 5 or 6 if you have them. Not mandatory though. Thins/eases up pretty quick.

I climbed this back in 03'. It was fun, but short. I Looked at it recently and it looks like the top is now filled in with brush. If you're planning on leading it don't forget your pruners in addition to your wide gear. Mar 11, 2015

If you don't bring anything bigger than #4 I think you'll find yourself soloing after the first 10ft.

Pretty good quality. I found the first 15ft quite hard for 5.8, though you can cheat around the hard part if you really want to. Dec 3, 2017
