Description

This route goes up the crack to the left of Rosebush. Climb up the crack through a small bulge and then continue up past a fixed nut. Work your way up and into a short chimney area. From here you can jam the crack straight up, or work out onto the face on good holds to the right.

Location

This route is located on the south-facing wall at Practice Rock. Once you have topped out, belay your partner from there. This climb is not conducive to toproping, as there is a pair of rope-eating cracks. Walk back along the ledge twenty feet from the anchor to a pair of rap rings atop Practice Crack. One single rope rappel will get you down.

Protection

A standard rack protects this climb nicely. Look for good passive pro. There is one fixed nut early in the climb. A two bolt anchor is waiting at the top (no rap rings).

As of March 29th, 2015, there is a cuddly looking Pika with a cozy home just above the wider chimney maybe 50 feet off the ground where climbers generally turn onto the face. He seemed utterly unperturbed by my lead (I didn't even notice the guy) but gave my 2nd a good scare. I climbed the route again, and he didn't even wake up.

Easily avoidable, but worth noting on your way up. Mar 30, 2015

Watch out lowering a partner off this route/rappelling , as the rope can become wedged in the crack if no directional is set. Mar 25, 2010
