Another route I've entered to which I know very little. I onsighted it with no knowledge of prior ascents. Please leave information in the comments if you know the name and history of this crack.

Starts off easy enough with first pro 15ft or so up. Black rock is slippery, light rock is crumbly. Crack widens in spots. Good pro (#3) near the crux, so it's got that going for it. Liebacked the right side of the crack while smearing on ball bearings on the left. Very tiring for my fat weekend ass. .10a or less, probably less if you climb more often than I (maybe twice a month now).

I'd avoid it.


One crack to the right of Scorpion Crack


I recall using doubles from .5-3, and a #4. Didn't use nuts or tiny cams.

Used anchor for Lightning Crack.
