Description

Possibly the most climbed route in all of Kootenai. This is great for beginners as well as a first trad lead. The climbing can get pretty greasy at times do to the amount of traffic it recieves.

Location

The left-most climb on the Identity Wall, marked by a large right-facing dihedral.

Protection

Camalots ranging from .5 to 3, nuts work great, this crack will eat just about anything.

Great climb, not too sure about that PG 13 rating. I find it protects very well... Sep 24, 2009
Here's a little more info: you can walk up to set up a top rope probably 2 x 3's and a 4 would be nice camalot. locate classic crack, then walk left and up, there's a little down climbing involved maybe 4th class.


then the rating i would say for kootenai is on par and rated G.

nothing in kootenai, is above a grade I. Nov 6, 2009

I fail to see the PG-13, the crack will accept up to a BD-4 any where. Pretty sure it can be done with in 1 hour of the car therefore grade 1 Mar 8, 2010

5.7, No PG13. You can pretty much sink gear in wherever you want. A long sling is useful for the top belay or if you toprope the climb. Apr 20, 2010

About 2/3 of the way up there are 2 studs with nuts on them to the right of the crack. You can cinch them off with a nut and a draw. You don't need these at all but it might be helpful. Sep 19, 2011
