This is the splitter and sharp finger and thin hand crack. The top of the crack was dirty, but with traffic this thing would clean up great.


This is the beautiful, white, splitter finger crack on the far left of the wall.


Fingers 1/2 - 1" cams.

Just a note. I added the route with its given grade from both the Carville and newer North Tahoe guide. I felt that the route was closer to 10a or maybe 10a/b relative to the other routes we climbed at Rainbow the day we spent there.

This route has been singificantly cleaned since I was last here almost two years ago. It it much more pleasant today (4/19/2014). Its a nice, but short, climb. Next time I come here, I'll put an anchor in at the top. The walk off is a pain and causes significant erosion. Sep 19, 2012

5.10b/c or 5.10c seemed reasonable to our party. We thought it could be called 5.10d at some places, if I'm going to honestly continue inflating. Short but pretty steep and sustained, it's no gimme. Seems like just a step below Aja (a nearby 5.10d). But grades are subjective, so it probably depends on your strengths. Maybe we're more calibrated to a Snowshed sense of grades, lol!

Good quality on this climb. It eats up .5 (purple camalots) and .75 (green camalots). Maybe a single 1" and fingers besides that and you're set! Nov 1, 2017
