Description

The better and slightly longer of the two cracks on the north face of the larger Half Dome boulder. Fun lie-backing and some nice fingerlocks lead to a committing crux at top. Bolts existed on top last I checked, so this and its neighboring crack are easily toproped.

Location

The righthand crack of the two prominent cracks on the north face

Protection

toprope or OTD boulder problem

This is a Rubidium classic and one of the better routes on the Mt and one of my favs. Nice and easy crack till the last 2-3 moves near the top. An experienced climber can free this easily, but recommend towrope for those not wanting to take a lil risk. Great route, enjoy! Jan 12, 2016

Used to run laps on this in my tennis shoes. Actually the base has eroded away over the years, but the landing has gotten better. Mar 23, 2014

FUN. I do this as a boulder problem now although, when I started climbing this was done as a toprope. Great moves. I wish it was longer. Jul 2, 2011
