Access Issue: CLOSURES: South and East Faces (NW & W Faces Remain Open) Details

Description

Usually begun with Free For All, this link-up of classic (mostly) hand cracks takes a direct line up the South Face, ending at the hiker's trail for an easy descent.

Dod's Jam (5.10b): Lieback & stem your way up an off-width corner that's actually quite fun, not awkward. From the top of the corner, monkey past a tree with some slings, then tackle an exquisite thin hands crack (.10b) splitting a steep, exposed face below the spacious Big Ledge.

Dastardly Crack (5.9): Step left from Big Ledge into a deep right-facing corner. It's classic hands and stemming pretty much the whole way to the top, with the crux coming where the crack bulges about halfway up. Finish on a nice ledge with rap hangers. Rappel from here with two ropes or a single 70m, or...

Get ready for some adventure: (5.7) Progress upward from the bolted anchors up broken cracks. Beware a number of disconnected blocks. Navigate to the right and follow a large crack to the obvious bolted anchors on the rock face above you.

Location

Toward the far left end of the South Face, past the Third Tunnel. Free For All starts up a small detached pillar just right of Free for Some and Windsurfer.

Protection

Gear to 4", doubles from 0.75-4". Nothing tiny needed.
