Description

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.

Location

Toward the right end of the wall

Protection

A standard rack is needed

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

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

This route is pretty greasy. The start was pretty awkward, but it got better just above the cables. Jun 2, 2014

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

I enjoyed the bottom 20' of crack the most. The anchor cables running across the rock are interesting. Apr 17, 2018
