Description Suggest change

This "5.8 Crack" is listed in the guidebooks as the crack in the corner just right of Boy What Assholes..., but no one ever climbs it. That's because it's dirty, hard to protect at the crux, (which is a bulge 3/4" of the way up), has crumbly suspect rock for much of its length, because the crux is by most measures harder than its listed 5.8 grade, and because it doesn't have a fixed bolted anchor for toproping like most at the Overlook. If you're one of those people who needs to climb everything at White Rock: tie in and give this right-facing corner a run. Begin just right of Boy What Assholes..., scramble up choss, continue up easy hand crack to an overhanging bulge where the crack thins to a seam. Tenuous liebacking on crumbly rock gets you past this crux, which is easier than it looks.

Protection Suggest change

Rack from RPs to 3". No bolted anchor. Consider stepping left to the Boy What Assholes anchor at the top.
