Description

Slight (usually dirty) ramp up to a ledge/mantle to gain the crack. A horizontal crack at the top of the ramp can protect this if needed. Follow the right leaning right facing crack up the dihedral and around the roof to the right and up to a ledge. Continue up the crack to the next ledge and a single bolt. A bolted anchor can be found to the right of the small tree to the right of this bolt.

Location

Farthest left route on the K Cliff. Distinctive right facing crack/dihedral.

Protection

Standard rack, pro up to 2 inches. Bolted anchor.

I believe this route is also known as "Special K". It is arguably the best line at the K-Cliff.

There is a fixed pin at the base of the cracks. From there, opportunities for pro are everywhere you could want them. If your second is likely to peel, place gear at frequent intervals to prevent them from taking a pendulum across the dirty face to the right of the route. (This mossy area hides some large, loose flakes which could be easily dislodged.) Sep 13, 2011
