Northwest Passage ascends the short, wide corner to the left of Wise Crack. Wiggle up the offwith, hands, and finger crack to the top. This protects pretty well and is fun for a 5.8 trad leader.

Walk off down the gully. Be careful of loose blocks at the top of this one. It is a really fun, moderate trad route and will get better with more ascents.


This ascends the farthest left dihedral at the Surprising Crag.


A handful of cams from #0.4 up to #4 Camalot. A #5 can help make you feel better but isn't totally necessary. A few finger to hand-size pieces can help for building an anchor at the top. Per Shadrock: there is now a two-bolt anchor with rap rings. Be wary of loose blocks at the top.
