Description

real short - more of a boulder problem than a rope route, but a fun combo of jams and a pull-up/mantel

in the little alcove right of the West Slabs. See Unnamed flared crack in the Supertopo Yosemite Valley Free Climbs.

Protection

lacking a pad, I fixed a rope from the tree above and TR self-belayed

[Hide Comment] I've seen these cracks referred to as Patio Cracks, in which case this route could be referred to as Patio Cracks--Left. Jun 12, 2017

[Hide Comment] Patio cracks are more like highballs with clear landing zones. This one has a pretty fun big move down low. Dec 10, 2018
