Access Issue: Rim Rock Trail Closure Details

Description

This crack is not listed in the new Haas/Schneider guide. It looked like a fun crack and it has anchors, so I gave it a go. It is likely a Dan Hare route, or that is my guess anyway.

Climb the fist crack in the block starting at an obvious undercling hold. Once atop the block step across a small chasm and engage the face above. The crack protects well with small nuts. The crux seems to be getting up to the small roof and then pulling over it. This is a fun and challenging gear route.

Location

This crack is located between Volobee and Tenacious. There is a two bolt anchor with rings at the top. Start in front of a large block at the base containing a fist crack. The crack above the block is thin and goes through an obvious, small roof.

Protection

Gear to a #2 Camalot. The upper crack takes mostly small nuts. A #4 Camalot will protect the moves in the fist crack at the bottom. There is a two Fixe ring bolt anchor at the top.

Felt at least as hard as Volobee. I'd give it an 11-. May 9, 2010

That really surprises me. Did you climb Volobee straight on, using the small crimps on the face or the crack to the right of the bolts? Either way I'd still say this route is easier than Volobee. I personally thought it was 5.9, even by Table standards. Wild to see the discrepency. May 9, 2010

Climbed this one again today. This time it seemed a bit easier than Volobee but not much. I climbed Volobee straight on, not using the crack on the right. Oct 24, 2010
