A nice hand crack. Worth a little more attention than it receives. Could use a litle cleaning in the crack but still fun as is.


Just left of a steep treed gully, about 150 feet to the right of Klahanie crack. Starts up an easy left facing corner then up into a hand crack.


Cams .5 to #2 Camelots and nuts. Save a #1 or #2 for the top. Can be rapped to a treed gully above and to the right of the start with a 60m rope.

Fun route. We used two ropes to get off. One could rap the side with a single 60m and get off I think. Chain anchor. I placed a #3, but one could do without it. Aug 13, 2011

fantastic climb. A bit slimy at the top, and still fantastic. Apr 1, 2013

Pleasant surprise, this route a great complement to Klahanie Crack. Short distinct crux where the crack crosses the dyke, cruisey elsewhere.

A 70m just barely reaches the base when rapping. For top-roping you might want to think about extending the anchor a bit. Don't worry about the rope lengths too much though, as the first five meters are low 5th. Very down-climbable. Jun 27, 2013
Can be lowered with a 60m to the roots at the right. Super fun. Hop on this while in the area. Aug 17, 2014

Really good climbing and definitely worth doing if you are in the area.

Note that it is much longer than it appears from the bottom as it keeps going over the crest. Bring some larger pieces for this top part that is not visible from the ground (BD C4's #2 and #3).

Best to have a 70 meter rope for this one but a 60 meter can be used with some shenanigans. Use the treed slope off to the right of the climb.

Tie knots in your rope for this one or better yet have your belayer tie in. Jun 6, 2016
Hand jams. Finger locks. Stemming. Good gear throughout. This is a great, long, user-friendly route on solid rock. And now it is the first pitch to a 5 pitch long multi-pitch route. Nice! Aug 29, 2016

Real fun 5.8. Would definitely recommend a 70 M rope. I was lowered with a 60m rope and didn't make it to the ground. There's a ledge to the right made up of roots and dirt that I made it down to, about 15 feet up to the right of the base of the right. Was able to walk down from there. TIE A KNOTS AT THE END OF THE ROPE IF YOU PLAN ON BEING LOWERED OR RAPPING WITH A 60 Jun 15, 2018
Enjoyable, varied climb with great views from the top. We used a 70m rope and it was NOT enough to get lowered completely. Had to downclimb a few feet. Jul 26, 2018

Fun route. We were able to lower with a 70m (rope stretcher!) but make sure to a knot in the end to avoid dropping your climber right at the end. Aug 24, 2018
