Description

Excellent crack climbing, and one of the easier routes at the cliff.

Go up the face to a bolt, then make a difficult low traverse past another bolt to reach the crack. Follow the crack to a ledge with a fixed anchor.

The crack extends to the bottom of the wall, but it's overhanging and super chossy. The described approach avoids all that.

Location

On the left side of a face, left of a prominent left-facing, left-arching corner (the corner is the route Bent Hickory). The start is shared with a thin crack in black rock (called Feeding the Rat, 5.11c) that begins 20' up.

Protection

Standard rack to 2".

This is yet another excellent line at Pinnacle. As Jim says, one of the easier routes at the cliff. There are still a few loose flakes on the traverse before getting to the crack, between the first and second bolts. Oct 20, 2014
