Description

This is a great crack with a few loose bits. I cleaned some large rocks out of it in 2012, cleaner now. Like many cracks at Vantage, it has undulations that would take hexes well. It does not have the usual many face holds so the crack is quite sustained with many creative positions to find rests.

Location

There is an alcove sloping up above the trail with Bob Dylan on the left, this is on the right side. There is a 10a crack left of it and a wide 5.8 left of that. This crack is furthest out to the arete on the right. there is a short tower with bolts on it, that used to be Herms tower, that someone pushed over.

Protection

Gear to 2.5"
Bolted anchor I added in 2015.
I could have used 4-5 #.75 camalots if I had them.Hexes and nuts work well in the constrictions. The bulk of the route is all .5, .75 and #1 camalot.
