This is the crack toward the right end of the wall face. This is a really fun climb. The protection can be a little tricky, but it's there if you look for it. This is also a good toprope.


Toward the right end of the wall


A standard rack is needed

I thought the bottom was the best part, really nice hand jams, after the cables one can just cruise. I used this crack as a good place to use big bros, just because I could, and I don't use them a lot, so why not. May 28, 2015

This route is pretty greasy. The start was pretty awkward, but it got better just above the cables. Jun 2, 2014
Agree with the slippery bottom, chose to lie-back the crux. Dumb cables in the way. I have talked with the phone company but can't get them to move them. Cables make this a bit trickier. Jun 15, 2010

The crux is near the bottom where the wall is a bit slippery. You need to use the crack. I didn't figure out how to "layback" on it, just jammed my hands and feet in the crack.

This is also a great route to practice rappelling from. There is a nice ledge at the anchor. Nov 5, 2009
