Description

This is an excellent beginner's climb on the northwest portion of Blair III. This route ascends a slabby system of cracks on the right hand side of a large notch (as you face it). The top consists of a right-facing dihedral with a nice hand crack in the back. It has excellent stemming.

Location

Descend via the rappel anchors located on the steep face (above Son of a Wanted Man, 13c).

Protection

Gear to #4 Camalot.

The dihedral/hand crack up top is the crux and a bit sustained. Wide stemming helps. I could have used a half dozen #3 & 4 Camalots for that section. Nice belay on top with horizontal crack to build anchor. Save three smaller cams (0.4, 0.5, 0.75) for this. Also could substitute with smaller tri-cams. Aug 28, 2009
