Description

This climb is located further down stream from the big roofs at North Clear. Its the most obvious and pure crack line at the Obed. You can't miss the soaring overhanging crack. A very demanding pitch of climbing and highly unusual for the Obed.

Location

Located just upstream from the obvious "point" at Clear Creak. A straight in splitter crack.

Protection

Standard rack

Brad,

Thought you of all of the old Knox crew would remember I did the F.A. of Liposuctor (I never named it Liposuction). A dead tree was trimmed to gain access to leading the crack otherwise your ass would have been harpooned. I actually have it on video with a couple of the locals yelping it up. Awesome that you gave this a lead. Aug 11, 2009

Not bad for clean aid practice either (maybe C2, final traverse towards anchors can get wild..watch for stuck aiders in the deep crack lower). Super fun free, many perfect jams and really didn't feel all that hard (despite the intimidation factor from the ground...and climbing in the middle of the night.. but that's pretty avoidable). Good route, based on the spider webs it seems like it doesn't get climbed as often as it probably deserves. May 26, 2013
