Access Issue: Annual Trail Closures to protect Peregrine falcons Details

Description

Starts as a hand/fist sized crack that can be jammed and gets progressively larger as it goes up (i.e. you can practically get inside the thing). After getting to a nice ledge walk up left to bolted anchor, but you may want to add a directional for your second first. If you like offwidths you might enjoy this, otherwise you might hate it.

Location

This climb is on the Central Slabs; after passing the end of the Lower Wall, go up the talus and Staircase and continue right.

In Precipice Right (i.e. up the Granite Stairs). To the right of a large roof (see Bartelby), locate a fist sized crack.

Protection

Probably want some large gear, the guidebook says #3, I used up to a #4. 2 bolt anchor at top shared with Bartelby and Sweet Surrender.

I placed 2 C4 #3's, 1 #1, 1 #2, a small nut, and walked a #4 a few feet. Not bad if you have some offwidth technique. Harder if you don't use the crack. Could use some serious gardening at the base. Jun 19, 2013

felt a little sandbagged like some other climbs at south wall. BETA: no cams work at the top of the crack, its gets too wide. keep your eyes open for other placement, its there. fun climb even if it was a bit scary for me being new to trad leading. Jun 27, 2016
