Description [Suggest Change]

I am not really sure if this is a first ascent or not so if you know do tell!

Eager to relish in the irony of climbing a crack in a fantastic sport area, we decided to climb a crack. The first part is a pretty straight forward left side in chimney. The hand crack starts going around the slight bulge with solid holds until you top out into some plants and dirt. Chimney up a little more until you are level with the anchors for route 214 in the book. This is where the fun part starts (hence the R rating). Place pieces where ever possible. I placed a blue dragon cam and a #3 nut in a flake in in the chimney and used 120cm slings to alleviate rope drag. Traverse on marginal protection yet surprisingly secure holds to the route 214 anchors and descend.

Location [Suggest Change]

In between routes 215 and 216

Protection [Suggest Change]

What I used:

purple power cam
yellow link cam
#4 camp hex
little blue dragon cam on a 120cm sling
#3 trango nut also on a 120cm sling

in that order.
