A great introduction to desert crack climbing. Start down and left of the crack near a pine tree. Ascend the obvious splitter crack in the wingate slab. The crux is getting past a thin-hands section to the good hand jams and another little cruxy section just before the anchor (bring something like a green or a yellow alien). Originally called 10a, this will feel easier than anything in Indian Creek.


Drive south on the scenic drive past the visitor center and campground. After 8 miles the road will turn to dirt. Drive another 1/2 mile and you will see the obvious splitter hand crack on the right about 200 feet from the road on the left (south) side. There is a pine tree at the base, just left of the crack.


some finger pieces for the bottom and top,1 .5 camalot, 2-3 .75 camalots, 3-4 #1 camalots, 2-3 #2 camalots, 2 #3 camalots. rappel off bolts with chains.


Ron Olevsky definately did the FA, as he recalls it was '79 or '80. The anchor included at least one drilled baby angle.. Super classic little splitter with a sporty start. Feb 3, 2013

Yes, rappel from a two bolt anchor with chains. I believe that one rope will get you down... a seventy meter definitely will. Jul 19, 2013
