Start off on slopey bulgy face holds to gain the crack. Once you gain the crack, climb it. Starts will little to no feet, pulling through will be rewarded with a nice hand jam. Keep cruising using your off width technique and some chimneying. This thing showed no sign of travel. The route is a little dirty and will benefit from more traffic.


This route is located approximately 20 feet to the right of Groovy Crack.


M-L nuts to #5 C4. Take an extra number 4 if you want to protect the top out really well. Gear anchor. There is a massive block to sling that works well as an anchor. Rap using the bolted anchor above groovy.

Hate to break it to you but you didn't get the FA. I climbed it a few years back, and I'm sure I wasn't the first one up it either. Still a fun line to hit up, especially if you're camped right there. Aug 10, 2016

Right on. Vegetation must have grown in quickly. Couldn't be climbed without excavating quite a bit in the crack low down. I was surprised based on it's location that it didn't show signs of traffic. Aug 17, 2016

I really liked this climb - varied movement, great gear, and a full-value finish. The rock was a little gritty and there was some vegetation down low, but overall, I thought it climbed really well.

Honestly, there's no way that this is a 5.9 - certainly not compared to other 5.9's on King. I found it to be a tick harder than Groove Crack, and a fair bit harder than Double Cracks. Great climbing, good gear, and really fantastic movement. One of my favorites on the wall. Jul 4, 2018
