DescriptionThis dirty but fun crack runs the entire height of the wall. Casual climbing at the start leads into a crux section with some committing moves as the holds decrease in size and the wall steepens to near vertical. Topping out the route can be a bit tricky but if anchors ever get added then that won't be a concern. Top out and build a tree anchor just a few feet back from the edge. There is even a perfect, chair sized boulder to sit on while you bring up the 2nd.
This would be a good beginner lead as the crack offers good stances while placing pro and the crack accepts a good variety of gear. We found that the route seems to have been made for hexes as they slotted in the crack in textbook placements.
