FA: Mike Weber
Alaska > Anchorage & S C… > Valdez Area Rock > 101 Wall (Worthington)

Description

This left leaning finger crack is one of the most obvious line on the wall. Follow it on Cam's and nuts halfway up the cliff to a ledge that used to contain the capstone. From here you can stem up and follow the ridge or take the proud line and continue on the face out right with great hands and shit feet. Plug a medium sized cam into the discontinued crack before reaching the dihedral and pulling onto ledge containing a 2 bolt anchor at the top of the cliff.

Location

This is the obvious crack up the main wall

Protection

Standard rack to 3", 2 bolt chain anchor.
