Description

Mushroom is the splitter thin hands crack on the far right side of the Papoose. Not to be missed if climbing at this crag. It's difficult for the grade if you aren't used to pure jamming and no face holds. Sustained at a thin-hand/ringlock size, it could be thought of as the easier twin to "Hand Jive" at the lower malamute.

Location

From the base of the Centerfold, Papoose one, etc follow the only trail for a couple minutes further to the right, and this obvious crack will come into view.

Protection

Many pieces in the .5 and .75 camalot size. You would probably be ok with doubles if you are comfortable with short runouts. Singles of smaller cams and a #1, and #2 (BD Sizes) will round out the rack. There are nice new fixed carabiners at the top of the route, don't run endless TR laps through them though.

Awesome splitter; if it was longer (or reached the ground) would be 4 stars. Jul 24, 2014
