Climb the crack starting just to the right of Grey Face. This is a great beginners climb with great gear placement.


Just to the right of Grey Face.


C3's up to .75 C4


Location is on the backside wall (west face) of the main detached block, which is the east wall of the corridor behind that block. Not far from the right / north end of that wall. May 24, 2014
Starts about ten or fifteen feet left of the first bolt for Warmup Route (which is the right-most bolted route on this wall).

The most protectable start is at a thin crack which is left of from below the not-so-thin flake/crack of the upper half of this route. Many leaders will find this harder than 5.7.
(Perhaps more interesting to start even farther left, at the 1-inch crack in the right side of the Grey Nose, then crossing right into the thin crack.)

Variation: Could also start directly below the upper-half flake/crack -- perhaps around 5.7 for those at least 5ft6inch tall (harder for those much less tall than that). No (or little?) protection until rejoin crack.

Variation: Could also start from the first ledge of Warmup Route, diagonal left up on the ramp to get under the upper-half flake/crack. Interesting balancy-frictiony. No (or little?) protection until rejoin crack. Aug 24, 2014
