Description

Hailstone Crack is believed to be the first route climbed at Hailstone Rock. But for the approach this climb would be considered a classic crack in an area not known for such. This surprisingly steep route features straight in hands, fist, and some wider sized sections of climbing with some nice edges, stems, and features on the surrounding face.

Location

This route is 15 feet to the right of Close Encounters route base.

Protection

A few small, medium, and larger (#2, #3, and maybe one #4 sized units). No Bolts or fixed gear. Finishes on ledge adjacent to bolted anchors.

Take 2 #3 and 2 #4 to sew it up, else you can bump them up on not so good placements Oct 29, 2016

Fun! stemming down low, short section of jamming, a few face moves when you reach the loose chock stone up high. Aug 22, 2016

I considered leading it onsight and I'm glad I didn't. Top-roping it was pretty tough--leading it would be much tougher. Even on a top-rope I thought it was harder than leading Hailstone Arete, Doppelganger and even Coroner. May 9, 2016
