Description

 Start
below the cavernous opening shaped like a downward-pointing arrow and work your way up the
large crack offering positive, if flakey holds for
the first 2/3 of the wall. At this point the quality
of stone changes dramatically to smoother, more
rectangular blocks with only small crimps for purchase. You will have to work your way to the left of
the crack to move past the crux. Beware of flaking mortar and active bird’s nests in the crack and
be careful when topping out - the jagged concrete
aggregate that forms the wall’s coping will draw
blood.

Location

This climb is located on the westernmost quarter of the north wall near the kitchen building. Stand facing the wall with the recessed, rusted metal truck scale to your left and the tall rusty gate to your right and you will see a gaping crack which begins about eight feet up from the ground.
