Description

Clint Cummins' book (web.stanford.edu/~clint/index/ ) calls it "MW crack 5.11a". Does not have its own anchor - can be considered an alternate start to Robin's Ramp.

Mostly 5.10, the hardest move is exiting the crack at the top.

Location

Directly below the first bolt of Robin's Ramp (~15 feet left of Robin's Ramp start)

Protection

finger-sized gear (or TR off Robins Ramp with a directional bolt)

[Hide Comment] Great bouldery crack. Would be 4 stars if it was longer. Starts easy with every move getting harder till the top. Aug 3, 2020
