Description

Simply a spectacular climb for the grade, Midnight Fright should be on everyone’s tick list. Go climb it! It is possible to top rope this route with two ropes, but the rope drag is tremendous.

Enjoy the stellar hand crack to a small stance. Step right and jam the flared fist-crack past the tree. Good offwidth moves lead to a slab and finally a live belay tree.

Location

Find the crack system with the slender pine tree growing out of it.

Protection

Single rack to 4”, doubles in the 2-3” range

Pulled an old fixed pin from the pin scar above the off-width. Never could get it seated will afterward. A 70 meter rope does NOT reach from the tree atop the slab. The slab is unprotected (I think their might be one bolt, but don't count on it).
