Description

This is one fantastic wide crack! This is a fifty-degree overhanging dihedral that starts out bigger than fist/fist stacks and suddenly pinches down to hand/hand stacks about a third of the way up. At the lip, it suddenly widens back to bigger than double fists. Start sitting on the obvious jug to the left of the crack. This is a high standard wide crack that is tall, committing, and pure. The rock is excellent on this one, the landing is perfectly flat, and the line is aesthetic. This is one of the best and proudest wide crack problems I have done anywhere, and I am extra proud to have onsighted this one.

Location

This is the big, obvious line that dominates The Stone Cold Cave.

Protection

A couple of pads and a spotter. The lip is about fifteen feet up, and the crux starts where it pinches down and finishes when you top out.

Jay, the angle of the wall is measured by "degrees past vertical", meaning it is measured down from a vertical wall. So a 50 is steeper than a 40, and a 60 is steeper than either. By your way of thinking, 130 degrees would be an accurate interpretation of what is typically called 50 degrees overhanging. Yes, a math degree and currently working on more math/school. :) Nov 25, 2012
"Fifty degrees"?
Do you mean 130 degrees? Or is it less, than vertical?

Weren't you a math major?
