Description [Suggest Change]

This pitch can be done roped or unroped. I personaly think it is a 4th class scramble but some might want to place a cam or two. To get to the top stay in the wide crack system all the way to the top (don't turn right into the harder steeper cack near the middle).

Location [Suggest Change]

The crack to the left of The Bulge that slants left at a 50-degree angle. To get down either walk down the east gully or continue up east on the ridge.

Protection [Suggest Change]

One or two cams if you feel it is unsafe, otherwise just chalk and shoes

If you can scramble it, which is plenty easy to do, it is a shortcut. If you are not comfortable doing that, go left around the whole rock and walk up the back. The gaping off-width the route follows doesn't take gear with any grace at all. You can protect your first move, and sort of protect the step at the top, with maybe one marginal #4 placement in between, but it really is fourth class - to be treated as such. Feb 1, 2015
