Description

A fun, mostly hand-size crack with a section of offwidth- to fist-sized. The start is a little tricky, particularly if you are shorter. The short offwidth section is a bit intimidating, but either liebacking or a bit of groveling followed by fist jams will see it through.

This crack gets sun fairly early, so it is a good one to start with on a brisk morning.

Location

This right-facing, corner crack is located in the same alcove as Deface Crack and Red Warrior. There is a v-shaped chain anchor on the face just to the right of the crack.

Looking down, 500 W street in Saint George is just slightly west. The belay area is large, flat, and well-used so it should be hard to miss.

Protection

A #4 Camalot C4 fits the offwidth section, and #2.5 and #3 Friends for the rest (and I used one #2 friend as an oppositional piece at the start).

A three-bolt anchor at the top with a chain and a quicklink, although although only two of the bolts are connected by the chain.

Photos

Off width section was wierd but its not very long and there are great jams above it.

Can be done safely with #s 1/2/4/4/2/2/2 Camalots. Might squeeze in a 3 somewhere if you wanted to. Very fun and strenuous for the length. Anchors are in a great location. Apr 18, 2014

I TRed this and it was pretty enjoyable. the first move is a reach to a good hold. After that you can hand jam with the left hand and high step to a good ledge. then you stand up while holding onto a good hold and begin the lieback/offwith. I liebacked it up to the hand sized part. The hand jams are awesome with some edges on the right for your foot. I'll definately have to lead this once I build my rack a little more. Sep 14, 2011
