Description

This incredible route has one of the rarest of Devils Tower features: splitter cracks! Continuous thin fingers and stemming will keep you thinking and cranking all the way to the chains.

Climb Dusk in Dogtown a short ways until you can reach into the splitter crack on the right. Continue up the sustained finger locks until the crack thins and you can reach left to another crack that angles up and right towards the anchor.

Location

Start on the ledges below the Window (access this area by traversing right from El Cracko).

Protection

Lots of nuts and small cams to .75 camalot.

One of the absolute best routes at the tower! Loose block in the middle of the route, but could not get it to come out. Most of it can be top roped from the Dusk in Dogtown anchors (10c), but this thing takes great gear. Give it a go. Oct 4, 2016
