Description

Climb via a variety of jamming with ample faceholds, surmounting two small overlaps in the crack. The second small roof is probably the crux. At the top, the climbing eases before a final little move before the two bolt anchor, shared with Right Tracks Crack.

Location

The lefthand of the two cracks facing the river. Begin from the good ledge along the base.

Protection

Nuts and cams from 0.4" to 3".

I climbed here about 10 years ago with Wade Drogermyer and Dustin (forgot his last name) judging by how much choss was in the crack we figured it had never been climbed before. I did the FA (for our crew at least) and called it "Crack Whore," mainly to illustrate my feelings for the climb...

All I really remember of the route is that I got so pumped that I just ran out the last 3rd of the pitch, not being able to place any gear without falling.

We thought it was slightly harder than 10a, but that was with the debris and chunks of rock falling out.... Aug 1, 2010
