DescriptionWhat a route! From the inviting handcrack, to the rising traverse crux, to the spectacular finger crack above the imposing roof--Christine packs ALL of this into one long, and demanding pitch of climbing.
The route climbs the right-angling hand/fingercrack on the left side of the triangle face at the height of the climbers trail (Note: the climber can also start the route by climbing the easier handcrack that starts on the right side of the obvious triangle face), then breaks hard to the right at a pair of parallel cracks that angle up right to a steep roof. The traverse is the crux of the route, and it protects well, it just requires some patience.
After the crux, gain a rest in the corner before the roof. Pull the roof, then climb into the clean, lower-angled finger crack to the slung tree.
LocationAt the height of the climbers trail (center of the cliff) is a hand crack. This is the start of both Christine and the route Hob Goblin.
