Description

Indian Crack starts climbing over a bulge to get into a large open book. Follow the dihedral of great rock that looks mean past a few small roofs. Good steaming, Jams and Lay-back are available on this route. Be careful not to let the rope push you gear to far back into the crack. After leaving the gigantic flakes cut left to the anchor.

Location

This route is located further right than indicated in the Alaska Rock Climbing Guide. Walk left half a rope length from the small drainage that splits the two main climbing faces.

Protection

Gear to 3", 2 bolt chain anchor.

Interesting climb, awkward start leads to easier climbing a couple of #2 #3 bd cams wouldn't hurt. Old rusty chains with really, really shiny studs. Be aware how your rope runs, this route has some very, very sharp edges. Jul 4, 2015
