Description [Suggest Change]

If you love crack climbing, this is one for you.

Licheny, coarse, and loveable.

This one doesn't let up, including the coarseness of the granite, but the hand jams are great. Two #3s are helpful.

Location [Suggest Change]

Downhill about 70 yards from the Arborist. Start atop a boulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Belay off of a tree about 40 yards back. Rap off of obvious Arborist anchors up and climber's right.

Really short climb. You will only place a few cams plus a few more for a gear anchor. This is not a 3 star climb by any means. With that said, don't hike to this crag solely for this climb. Sunset Crack is the classic here. Jun 18, 2015

I just wanted to clarify the distance. Phil's Solo is maybe about 30-35 feet left of arborist. Definitely a fun climb but very short. Oct 17, 2015
