Climb the face about 15 feet to obtain a horizontal crack and the thin vertical crack system. Follow it to the anchors.


This is the thin crack splitting the face just right of Fun Alley Wall, at the far left end of the Blind Man's Bluff area.


Gear to 1.5", 2 bolt rap anchor.

Mike's Crack is closer to 30 feet. It's fun and surprisingly pumpy. Solid gear is available throughout the route. I placed nothing larger than a .75 C4.

Edit (3/2016): I climbed this thing again. It might be 40 feet. More importantly: this route is FUN! Maybe my favorite 5.10 at Sam's. The gear is small but solid and plentiful. Every time you need a jug, you get one. May 12, 2014
