The beginning of this route really needs a bolt. Originally, Dylan though this would be a roof crack, but the start pushes you out onto the face. With a bolt and some more cleaning on the upper crack, this would get another star.

Scramble up to a large ledge, get gear in the crack, and follow better holds on the face up to a cruxy lip encounter. Pull around onto the face, much more easily and with fantastic views up the wide crack.

Bolted rappel anchor on the next prominent buttress climber's left brings you back to your packs.


~100 ft. left of Snap, Crackle, Pop, in the prominent alcove.


Standard rack to #4 camalot. No fixed anchor, belay on top of the cliff from gear.

Lets call it Traction Splint. Fitting as a fall from the crux would not be pretty. A more Aesthetic direct start on the face around the corner would be a better way to access the enjoyable wide crack above and should have bolts installed sometime this fall. Aug 25, 2016
