Description

Follow the corner/crack past a small overhang to the top. The highly-featured rock in and around the crack make this route a little different from your run-of-the-mill crack climb.

Location

Toward the right end of the wall. Look for an obvious crack that starts out in a wide and weird corner down low, and then continues as a hand crack to the top.

Protection

standard rack, bolted anchors at top

Fun lead, but the beginning is not very well protected. Start the corner/cave to get to the first piece. Jun 9, 2009

Fun route with the option to really get in some crack climbing here and there! Good warm up for the day!! Jan 13, 2013

Great crack climbing that is almost unique to this route in Crowders. A must do. Really easy to set up TR for those not interested in leading. Jan 23, 2017
