Description

The climbing on Ox Crack might seem hard right off the ground but after a few awkward moves bomber hand jams appear. Follow the crack up and then left to a ramp. Next head right and out under a roof before stepping up to the anchors.

Location

Upper Leda...hard to miss the nice looking hand crack in a corner that weaves up through roofs.

Protection

Trad gear. Tree with slings at the top.

To reduce rope drag, bring a pair of 4 foot slings for anchors. Also, this route is known by locals as Ox Stone Crack. Mar 25, 2009

Beautiful line that is hard to walk by. Often wet after a rain. Great route for new 5.8 leader if you can get past the first 12 feet. Aug 19, 2012

There are two old shunts above the first roof for a sport climb, the Ox Crack anchors are right of the second roof about 15' above the shunts and harder to spot from the ground. The anchor was a pair of vertically arranged hangers with rings, and an older sling between the two as a sort of backup. Aug 7, 2017
