Description

This ascends the lovely, but short, flake just to the left of the pile of boulders below Get Up That Tree. It starts as a great overhanging hand crack, which morphs into a slightly overhanging offwidth and finishes as a hard, steep, weird, slab climb.

Top-roping it is easy, so throw a rope on it, and see what you can do!

Location

This is right of Crichton's Crack and left of Get Up That Tree.

Protection

Thin (0.5) to Thick (5.0), or just TR it.

Another Diamond and Harper contribution in '92. We had just done Peaches and Creme up at Lumpy a few days before when we spotted it. It looked like a mirror image of P&C, yet shorter, so we jumped on it. It protected well despite wanting to 'spit you out' ..... and then came the 'crux move' onto the face. We placed two pieces in near the top of the crack as it petered out, anticipating a spring loaded fall (which we both did) before figuring out the exit sequence. Thank God this top section isn't longer or the grade would go up. Jan 23, 2017

Sure this looks intimidating and is easy to setup a top rope on, but don't let that keep you from leading it- The gear is really good and only a few feet below you when topping out. Just figure out the beta for the finish prior to starting up this one. Oct 2, 2008

If you are thinking of a toprope as well, Kate and I used a very long cordalette to sling a huge boulder on the left and chucked in a cam or two for backup. Set a directional in the top of the arching crack to compensate for the off-center anchor.

I loved the overhanging crack. I was feeling very powerful until the delicate slab moves tricked me into several falls. That top-out would make this a very brave lead in my book. Aug 12, 2008
