Description

I am not sure what to say for the rating, since I have not climbed this one. It was done as two pitches originally, but it looks as if it could be done in one long pitch The crack looks wide, blocky, and very protectable. If done in two pitches, you will need a gear belay for the first pitch. This probably never had a second ascent, and most likely it is dirty. Treat it as an adventure! I am not trying to sandbag the route, and it may be easier that the given grade. I will talk to the FA and see what they remember and update.

Location

This is 10-20 feet to the right of Caroline's Crack, up a right-facing corner of sorts.

Protection

The crack looks mostly wide but fairly variable. Bring a rack as if it was a FA minus the bolt kit. Metolius rappel anchors are about forty feet short of the top of the cliff left of the crack. Do one double rope rappel.

Glad to! I wonder if the wall has some sport route capability? I would suggest camouflage bolts/hangers, since it is across from the main campground. I have been stopped by the same ranger twice while I have been in there (not for climbing), he is nice but treats everyone like a suspect when he finds the area trashed.
I will post more FAs if I can figure out where they go. Nov 7, 2015

You can see the rap bolts from the camp. Tough to see but obvious, left of the crack on the blank looking red face. Nov 6, 2015
