Description [Edit]

This is an excellant crack climb for beginners and shouldn't be missed if you are in the area. The climb eats gear and only has a few places where hand jams are needed.

Location [Edit]

This is the first crack you come to if you follow the trail from the parking area.

Protection [Edit]

Gear standard trad rack up No. 3

I know the history. Tim Garland wrote a guidebook to it years back, and I've put up a few routes myself. PM me for details. Oct 25, 2014
