Description

This route was established by Uwe Schneider and Jeff Swayze during their first year with the Eastern Mountain Sports Climbing School, 1988. They named the route Crescent Cracks and gave it a grade of 5.7 (Communication from Uwe Schneider. I have thus renamed the route "Crescent Cracks"- R Hall Jan 2018 The Skyes' guidebook lists the climb just as "Crescent")

This may have been the cause of the Oscar Mayer / Crescent name mix up? I've added this route even though I have not climbed it. Looks like it is the same route as was put into mountainproject as "Ben Zen Send".

per "The Notches", page 85

START- At a left facing arching flake five feet right* of Touch of Grey. Climb this to a right-to-left diagonalling crack, then up a series of crescent cracks to bolted belay.

  • Oscar Mayer/"Crescent" is about 10-15 ft left of Touch of Grey.
