Access issues at the Lower Malamute. Details


The crux is near the start of this great sinker finger crack. Starts with some thin moves up to an overhang. Pulling over this bulge to get into the finger crack was the most challenging part of the climb. Finishes with about 40 feet of fantastic splitter finger crack.


Continues from the top of Old Style. Tops out near the base of Star Wall, finish to the top of the cliff on any of those routes (5.8-5.9)


Chain anchors, doubles in finger sized gear.

everyone has different styles of climbing, but if this is 5.9, then High mtn woody is 5.8, as well as Pauls crack. This is technically harder then Penny Lane or any 5.9 at the Smokebluffs. Great pitch what ever it is. Jun 7, 2016

A great 3 pitch route (recently cleaned) can be done by linking Old Style/Cider Crack/Grub Street. Access is via rappel from bolts. Jun 10, 2012

McClane's new Canada Rock Book has this at 10a, and I wouldn't disagree. Great pitch! Aug 7, 2010
