Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

The crux is getting to the ledge. It has good fingers. There is sketchy rock to get to the anchor. Use a directional cam after the lower section to keep the rope out of the crack.

Location

This is left of Frankies stuff.

Protection

Standard rack. Lower off anchor.

The iffy rock above the ledge (same as Shark Jaw) is reason enough that I'd never come back after I redpoint this route. You could theoretically pull a big piece off on your belayer. Heads up and wear a helmet. May 26, 2010

I agree. Very iffy rock up there! It was fun once, but like you said no need to go back...the whole wall is a boobie trap...fun lower section, though. Maybe could use a low anchor just after the first ledge...easier warm up for the area. FA was in a snow storm at at 30 degrees or so... my fingers were sharkcicles! Oct 24, 2010

There are two cracks that lead into one for this climb. The left is the standard route I'd assume. Has anyone climbed the right one, right next to Frank's Tame Years? It seems super hard! Jun 20, 2018
