Fun crack that is a good first gear lead. The crux comes right off the ground but can be easily protected. The rest of the climb is a very fun and straight forward crack


Downhill and around the corner from unconquerable


up to a #2 Camalot

Felt around 5.9 to me. The tree is kind of a pain when you climb, but still fun. Jan 9, 2017

In reality, the crux off the ground might be harder than a 5.8 move, but the climbing above is at the 5.8 level. If that first move was 2000 feet up in Yosemite, we'd rate it higher. Probably most people try to stand high on the right, put the left foot sideways in the crack and pull onto the left foot or cross over with the right. Dec 3, 2015

A #4 BD cam can be placed at eye level off the ground to keep from rolling down the slab if you fall at the crux (i.e. getting off the ground and into the crack). Mar 17, 2008
