Description

This is a crack climb, just left of 'B'ing There' and right of 'Texas DJ'. It's the widest/deepest crack on this face of Parachute Rock. The start has a nice finger slot inside along the crack (which makes for a short layback) and good friction through out the entire climb. Mid way up is the crux, which will feel a bit stiffer than 5.6 if you are not familiar with jamming.

Protection

Medium to large cams and medium length runners. A small tree at the top of the crack can be used too. The top anchors for 'Texas DJ' are shared with this route.

This was the first climb I did at this area. I found it to be a very enjoyable scramble to the top. The start of the climb has two funky moves to gain the nice hand flake, then it is off to the races.

In the mid-section, there is a flare in the crack for about 15 feet. A #3 and/or #2 Camalot protects this section. Use face holds and crystals to get to some bomber jugs.

Enjoy the area! Oct 31, 2016
