Description

This is big, old, beautiful, body crack. it is surprisingly fun for body crack (aka your not repeating that same move or technique over and over to jam your way up). It starts out on a face and goes about 10 to 15 feet before you reach the bottom of the crack. Then have fun up the crack reaching the end of the crack requires some good jamming technique and blind reach for the top (luckily the top corner is a jug). Then you can pull yourself on to a ledge about 8 feet from the top. From here its a matter of getting over a rounded bulge with out any visible holds only tiny crimps and chicken heads to the top.

Location

This route on basically the last moderately size-able rock moderately close to the road. If you get into a valley in which there is only the remnants of a ger camp your one valley to far. It is almost dead on the coordinates for this area. The rock face faces almost dead south. It is the first formation low on a ridge, and is just beneath some huge rocks.

Protection

Top ropes are solid there are some good trees nearby. As far as trad the is solid rock deep in the crack where most your gear will go Cams would probably seem more fit for this rather than the traditional nut or hex.
