Description

Climb the gently left-leaning 5.7 crack system finishing at a chain anchor to the left once you come over the top. Feet will be mostly slab features for the first 2/3rds of the climb. Crack starts shallow but gets deeper after a few moves.

At the time of posting this, the crack was a bit dirty--the area is still clearly under development. Definitely a hidden gem of a climb.

Location

From the parking lot, walk past Burgers and Fries to the next trail on the right. Marked sign will indicate to High Cliff. Follow trail down and past high cliff. First developed area you come to is Island in the Sky.

The Kip is located just to the right of Fissureman's Friend (found in the guidebook). To get to the base of the climb, scramble up a gully lined with cedar trees. Belay will be on the ledge to the left.

Face also has a bolted slab climb, not in the guidebook. Felt 5.9/10a. Perhaps a local could tell you.

Protection

Gear to 2", there are bolts and chains for the anchor
