Description

Amazing hand and finger crack, that protects well. Follow the obvious crack initially trending left and then back right through a couple of steeper sections to attain a good bolt anchor.

Location

Follow the trail that divides Marker and Emancipation to the southeast side of the Inner Marker formation. Take a left and follow a gully up to the base of the hand/finger crack.

Protection

Std Rack #.4-#2 Camalot, 1 set of Stoppers

I'd leave the anchors, you can still do the upper portion anyway. How is the rock quality up yonder? Oct 24, 2007
