Description

Perhaps the best of the "early" routes on Crane, this line begins as for In the Beginning, at a left-rising flake/crack 15' left of the gigantic inside corner. But rather than traverse 20' left, only shift ~6' left, striking off through a seam leading through a bulge, make tenuous moves over hollow plates, up a shallow hand crack, to a second crux move reaching for a rock "fin" to gain easy ground leading to a sloping belay under an overhang to the right.
Pitch two moves back left, onto a knob-covered face left of the crack line. Without protection for the first 40', climb knobs to eventually meet the easing angled slab at the top.

Location

Start is the same as In the Beginning, at a left-rising flake/crack 15' left of the gigantic inside corner of Providence.

Protection

Standard Adirondack Trad rack
