A stunning continous finger crack with prime West Fork Real Estate. If you make the hike and manage to find your way threw the jungle you will be rewarded with an incredible all gear route in a location straight out of a children's book.
This is the hard part so listen carefully. Hike about 3 miles back on the west fork trail. If you want to count creek crossings it's 11 crossing before you leave the main trail. After about 3 miles and just before the 11th crossing the aid route Equinox will be on the left(east) side of the canyon just before the river takes a big bend to the right(west). Equinox is very recognizable, the upper pitches are inside a huge chimney that if you are looking you can't miss, it's beautiful. After you make your 11th crossing you will arrive at little sandy beach on the inside of the bend in the river you will be able to look up at equinox to the east and to the south on the same side of the creek there is a big glassy beautiful wall. Cross the river right here once more and head up into the jungle away from the creek towards this wall. Look carefully for the little steep game trail to get you out of the creek bed. Once out of the creek bed head to the west following the path of least resistance threw the jungle. your objective is to hike around to the west face of the big glassy wall. use your path finding skills, there is a game trail leading threw a pass in the ridge close to the wall. Once on the west side follow the base of the cliff until you see the the lightning bolt crack splitting the perfect rock, just after the big cave.
