Crack right in the middle of the Tombstones. Jugs on the sides and good feet on the sides too. Be comfortable with trad leading at this grade because none of the gear was that solid.


The crack in the middle of the Tombstones


#3 cam, #2 cam, and #1 cam. 2 open cold shuts at the top left.

Climbs a fist crack to offwidth with plentiful face holds on either side, which means you can face climb around the crack if so inclined, to a balancy move out left to the anchors. Jan 11, 2010
Sam and I climbed, named and installed the top anchors, when we put in the other main routes on the wall in the early 90's. However, given that it is a short, easy crack with a walk off, it is unclear if we did the fa.

First recorded ascent. Jack Marshall, Sam Owings Mar 17, 2016
