Description

You can't miss this from the trail, faces north, splitter fingers for maybe 25 feet or so. This is the first climb you'll see as you approach the Dinner Table area from the north by trail.

Previously unreported route. Do you know of any activity up there before the 2003 fire? Jan 19, 2018

Ahh, that makes sense Crotch. I've heard tales of some of the old dogs running around over there decades ago, and you can find rusty hangers that look WAY older than 2003 farther up the hill. I'm not sure, but if I had to guess I'd say it was climbed long before that.

I've read some stuff online from a guy named Terry that put a lot of work into that area, that made me understand he'd been doing it forever, mentioned names like Piggot/etc climbing over on that side if memory serves. He mentioned even he didn't know who FA'd this one, if I recall correctly. Again, I haven't even been climbing since 2003, so this is all just info I've picked up through reading and conversation. Ilona's Crack does have a nice ring to it, my little girl is named Ilana - close enough! Jan 22, 2018

Yeah, it figures there were folks moving through the brush on the south side of the road. It's in plain sight, a short walk, and an obvious line. Glad it hasn't sprouted bolts. Not every climb needs a name or an anchor. Jan 24, 2018

+1 on the bolts comment, Crotch. I think you're inspired by the fate of Yoav's crack? You probably know this, but a couple 3" cams or a 3 and a 4 climber's left makes a great anchor on this one for avoiding the crack-eat-rope struggle. Jan 24, 2018
