Description [Suggest Change]
The crack is on the left side of the Coffin. The crack starts out on a lower angle crack to a steep, 3-4" crack in the dihedral. The crack slims down to hand jams at the roof. Pull the roof and enjoy the last few moves of crack to a ledge. I set a bomber hex directional for my second and climbed up another 10 feet up an easy slab to some anchors to belay. Use those anchors to rappel.
Location [Suggest Change]
The route is located on the left side, or the right-facing dihedral, in the coffin. Scramble up ledges to access the climb from the river. Rappel off of rappel anchor on slab at the top of the climb to climber's right.
Protection [Suggest Change]
A couple of smaller pieces (green and red Camalot size) and multiples in hand pieces. One bigger piece, such as a #4 Camalot, is handy.
