Description [Suggest Change]

Fun fingers crack at the start, leading into a wide flare, and then face holds and finger locks to the top and shared anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

Last route on the trail, about 20' after the trail comes around the cliff corner.

Protection [Suggest Change]

couple finger size cams or nuts, and then a 2" or 3" cam for the flare, and then a couple medium nuts for the top half.

Detached, but seemingly stable blocks form the left side of the crack on the top half of Northern Pearl; because of this, all gear placements through this section are suspect.

A quality addition and good warm up route. The blocks that Chad mentioned look like they are detached, but they don't budge at all when pulling on them, and I found a good placement for a large nut there. It was better than the alternative of a micro-cam in the wiggly dinner plate block in the main crack just to the right...
Oh, and I think that I placed a 4" cam rather than a 3" in the wide section, but seems like both would work. May 31, 2015
