Description

This is a face climb next to a faint prow on the Uninspiring Wall area. A thin crack climbs to 15 or so feet and offers a zipper piece placement (probably your smallest cam). Continue climbing the runout face on frictiony rock with tiny face holds. Turn left under a blocky top (crux) and head towards a tree that makes for a good, quick anchor.

Descend by walking off back from the tree down a sloping, bushy ledge to the trail along the base of the wall (see picture).

Location

Follow the Hawk & Eagle approach listed for the Uninspiring Wall route posted by Clint Locks. Cracker Jack is a face climb next to a faint prow on the Uninspiring Wall.

Protection

This is slightly runout. Bring a light rack of small cams and nuts. Use the tree for an anchor.

I love climbing. I'd rather climb the nearby trees than this again. It isn't that this route is bad, it was just really lack luster. I've had some scramble ascents that were more hair raising and exciting.

The gear was placed only as a "well fuck it...we're supposed to place gear 40ft up a wall. might as well." I climbed this within my first few weeks of climbing, so this isn't from a wellspring of experience, talent and skill. Feb 18, 2014
