DescriptionLooking up at this intimidating, overhung offwidth crack, it might be hard to believe that "Wormhole" is only rated 5.9...but it really is.
The first 40 feet are as rough as they look. It's a grovelly haul, and the crux of the whole route comes in the first 10 feet of the climb. This first crack is a shared start with "Stargate."
Reach the ledge, shake out, walk to the back of the ledge and ascend the fantastic second half of this line. Stem, jam, use face holds, layback off the ceiling, it's all good, and it's really all there. Incredibly fun movement, and secure stances for placing big gear!
Pull the lip with a little trickery, and wedge yourself into the the widest portion of the crack 15 feet from the top. Spend a few moments worming your way up to the end, anchors on the left.
