DescriptionThis beautiful crack splits the right side of the Oyster dome top to bottom. There is some great climbing, it just happens to be guarded by choss and vegetation. Ah, the Northwest
ProtectionGear from .5 to 5 inches, doubles 1-4 (extra wide gear won't hurt)
p1(5.7): A chossy approach pitch angles up a vegetated slab/corner to a large block. Once on top of the block traverse left past a bolt to the base of the crack and up to a bolted anchor. Gear is non-existent off the deck, and the foliage adds some spice to the first 40 feet.
p2(5.10+): Wild stemming and jamming made on this steep splitter is made slightly more difficult by shrubs growing in the crack. Mostly #.75-3
Build an anchor from a stance on a chockstone, as the crack widens to 4". (or run the hero pitch to the top)
p3(5.8): Follow the dirty 3-5" crack to the upper tier and belay off a tree.
Scramble up to the top and walk off the hiking trail. Also, with a 70m rope, one can rappel from the top, to the anchor at the top of pitch one.
