Description

This is the first crack system to the right of Two Wheel Drive. It starts on a blocky slab to some thin hands and then continues up a ramped dihedral with a vasicular hands section
The crux is at the exit out of a painful hands dihedral that slightly kicks back at the top.

Location

Same as for Diablo/Early Wall, and right to the right of Two Wheel Drive.

Protection

Camming units from 1/2" to 3.5", medium to large stoppers, and a 9 or 10 hex to protect the moves up onto the slab. A good selection of trad runners. Walk off the top, or access the Two Wheel Drive Anchors and rap.

Difficult to say who did the FA of cracks in this area. We cleaned and led several cracks in the area including what is now the bottom of Humbolt prior to its bolting. Mar 6, 2009

Very similar to the harder 5.8 corners at The Overlook at White Rock. Multiple (>2) gold camalots would be useful on this one.
No tree at the top for a belay, so prepare for a gear anchor in crummy rock. Would be more stars but for the chunder at the top, por desgracia. Aug 21, 2011
