Description

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

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

Protection

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
