This climbed up the obvious S-shaped hand crack, then pull some technical maneuvers straight up the face above the S-crack. The climb is much harder than it looks.


This route is on the right side of the crag approximately 70 feet to the right of Cactus Box.

This climb has a 2-bolt anchor, though the ratty rope/sling probably ought to be replaced, with chains, ideally.

I think I heard somewhere that Walt W. put the anchors in here a while ago, so people in the houses above would be less aware of climbers below.

Rack with nuts & cams up to #2 camalot, with 2 each of #1 camalot helpful. Mar 16, 2009
Hey George - I don't remember bolting any anchors at Estante/Crack House. Maybe I did, though. It's certainly possible. Mar 22, 2009

The sling on the bolts has been replaced with new sling. The hangers are homemade and a bit sharp on the inside of the bolt hole so the new sling is padded by chunks of the old sling. It would be best to replace the hangers with new hangers should anyone feel inclined. This anchor also serves Ninja Turtle Crack (if we climbed the "correct" line). May 2, 2011
