Description

Jon Skyes' "The Notches" (eaglecliffpub.com) names this climb "Oscar Mayer" and credits the FA to Uwe Schneider. (It is called "Cresent" in NEClimbs.com.) Uwe wrote and indicated he named the climb "Oscar Meyer Weiner" in 1986, but subsequently that name was used in 2012 by Mike Lee & J. Sykes for a climb on the far right of the slab, so to avoid confusion I named this climb just "Oscar Meyer". RHall note added 3/28/17, revised 1/14/18

A nice climb up a right facing corner crack, that leads to a bolt and then some nice balancy moves up to a really cool ledge. Finish up the left slanting exit crack to the trees

Location

Left hand side of the left hand section. A little to the left of where the trail brings you up.

I don't know if the bolt has been replaced...but if not it should be! Also, one can scramble to the anchors of the face climbs to TR them. Sep 27, 2013

Good climb. Just remember when leading it not to try to turn a 5.7 climb into a 5.9 climb at the crux. Jun 27, 2017
My friend Thom LaRose and I established this route in 1986. It was the first of a number of routes I put up over the course of a few years in the 1980's. I named it Oscar Mayer. Jan 12, 2018
