FA: Howie Richardson, Robin Barley, Nick Barley 1988
International > N America > Canada > British Columbia > Okanagan > Skaha > (b) Red Tail Group > (d) Upper Red Tail

Description

Excellent crack climb with lots of jugs and good feet. The first bit is overhung and could be considered the crux. Walk down or rap the way you came

Location

Obvious crack to the right of Treasure in the Lichen.

Protection

Trad route that would probably eat just about any gear you could throw in it. There is a bolt at the beginning and bolted anchors at the top.

[Hide Comment] On par with the best .9 cracks anywhere. Link with the approach pitch for added value. Jan 13, 2017

[Hide Comment] Great climb with great position. The crux for me was arguably the first move pulling into the crack, clip up that anchor before sending off! Mar 21, 2017
