Description [Suggest Change]
Belay is within a bowl at the start of the crack, be cautious about falling rock or the way you will move if the leader falls since there is loose rock and the sharp corners of the tower blocks. The crack starts out about a foot wide with a flake to the left with a crack in it that takes gear well. Moving up the crack, it gets smaller above the flake and then larger once again. When you are above the flake, you should be able to use a #3 BD cam and some hexes to protect. The crack constricts at the top, be careful not to get stuck here because it is easy to wedge your chest between the blocks. Mantle over the top and there is a tree you can use as a quick anchor.
