A fun, easy to protect crack that begins with the crux right off the ground. Getting up to the first gear placement may be a touch more difficult for those under 5'10"


You will find this crack between Black Bart and Shantytown Swing.


Gear to 2" with a small nut or two for the thinner middle section. Bolted anchor shared with Shantytown Swing to the right.

A real nice hand crack that eats gear pretty well. Also a good TR when you already have the rope on Shantytown Swing. Aug 7, 2008

Certainly worth carrying your rack to the crag for. Would be a superb first trad lead with easy placements, good stances, secure movement, and a bolted anchor. Likes cams .5-2.5" Apr 25, 2011

Indira lead and I followed. I find the initial start to get on the crack is the crux for me. I had to start from left side and then move over to the right. Great last climb of the day. Aug 16, 2011

Really fun route my 9 year old Daughter loved it. Would be a great first trad lead. May 1, 2012
High quality hand crack for its grade. It felt pretty soft for 5.6 trad, I highly recommend this climb. May 29, 2012
