Description

The obvious crack up the middle of the block. Pretty big in places, lots of face holds, occasional (or consistent if you wish) jams.

Protection

Normal rack, bigger gear works well. Takes nuts well. Bolted anchor

Crack looks interesting when viewed from far away. Up close it's kinda crappy and very flared. Gear placements looked poor. Scoped it out, decided not to lead it, glad I didn't. I don't like cams in flares. Maybe small nuts would work. Ok climbing, felt secure but you climb on face and flakes more than in the crack. I would not climb this route again there are better sport routes on rope de dope and trad routes across the river. Jun 18, 2014

From afar this looks like a stellar crack.

Up close it, the crack is there but not as "Indian creek" splitter as you would think.

Climbs fast with plenty of rests and supplemental face holds if you desire. This would be a good climb for new leaders due to the rest potential.

Plenty of natural constrictions from nuts.

I second EWRAD's description of this route.

Nut placement was bomber, but also took my cams just fine. That being said, I had to be a bit selective of how/when to place the cams. Still was a fun route to do if you happen to be here, about on par with the other routes on this formation. Not a bad beginner "crack" for newbies either, with optional jams available. Sep 30, 2017
