Description

This is a well graded seldom climbed crack within walking distance from Camp 4. There is a lot of munge at the beginning and an ice axe is recommended to clean it all out (no joke). The reward is this excellent crack:

Belay on a terraced, exposed ledge from small cracks (cleaning required). Climb up through munge on fifth class cracks and over terraces until a large left facing corner system starts (.7) Tight hand jams take you out an overhanging section of the corner (10c) Turn the lip of the corner with a #6 friend and follow the ramp to the belay bolts at the top.

Rappel down with two ropes.

Location

This climb is located on the far left side of the Camp 4 Wall and can be approached from either the right side of Middle Brother or from the Camp 4 Wall.

From Camp 4 - Walk through camp and head toward The Folly. Walk up the right side of the rock fall zone until you reach a large ledge with a trail heading up and to the right. Look up and find a large left facing, overhanging corner with a splitter crack in it.

From the Camp 4 Wall - Traverse the base of the wall left until you are almost to the Folly. Gain the large ledge with the trail and head up and right.

The climb can be seen from the meadow.

Protection

Single set of friends to #6. Slings. Two ropes.
