Description

This climbs a nice hand crack between Powderhorn on the left and Smokin' the Rock.

Enjoyable moves and great protection are to be found on this moderate crack which ends at a spacious ledge with anchors.

Protection

gear to 2.5", chain anchors

I found this significantly harder than 5.5. Maybe the fist crack that starts it off is 5.5, but once the crack ends it turns into more difficult face climbing. Look for a pocket on the right side around the arete. It can take a BD #1 or 2 and be extended with a single or preferably a double runner. I found pulling the ledge to gain the anchor the most awkward but you can fit a large nut at chest level so no worries. Aug 29, 2016
