Description

"A fall from this knife-edged crack can be messy. This climb follows a thin crack near the northwest edge of the south pillar of the Doorway. Begin on a bench 6 ft. above the ground." (1970 Climbers and Hikers Guide)

Location

On the west side of the Doorway's south pillar. You can mount the initial ledge either from the south or the west.

Protection

A couple of half inch nuts or cams.

There's a nice direct (V2) start on the face and arete below the crack, to gain the ledge from where you take the crack to the top. Apr 20, 2014

So short, so sharp, worth it once. Impossible Crack is way better. Jul 5, 2013
