Description

Not sure of the name, but this is the tempting off width crack in the corner on the left of the Red Headwall. Up this crack (crux) to the top of the huge detached block that forms it (if there is no ice, this can be much harder than M3). From on top of the block take your line of choice up more ice bulges, aiming for the awesome looking handcrack above. Climb said crack (M2-3) to the rap anchor above.

Location

Starts in the corner on the far left side of the Red Headwall.

Protection

Screws, mid sized cams protect the handcrack

That one looked great today, though the ice at the top seemed a little fragile and wet. I'm glad its mentioned. Jan 15, 2013
