Comments: I think this is right below where the Y-crack is... where the "body swallowing" crack is the right fork of the Y and left fork is unknown to me.

Comments: Me and partner experience is as follows:

P1: free soloed 4th class to a belay ( nice ledge right of the dihedral)20-30' below the roof.

P2: punch through weakness near right side of roof. Climb up to ledge and belay.

P3: move left to dihedral and move up on easy terrain to a ledge (100 feet) beneath steep terrain. recommend to belay here, even though only half rope length. A poor decision, I continued straight up steep and suspiciously loose terrain to the end of the rop... more >>

Comments: Actually, there are still two bolts. Both crappy, one rusty, one a spinner. One of these days i'll add the photo from climbing the route about 3-4 weeks ago.

Comments: JP.8d, I just looked into the Secor guide at the dihedrals. As of 2011 printing only the right of the two dihedrals has been climbed, South Crack, III, 5.9 sustained off-width and chimney (check the photo for more details). Two pitches go up left side of formation to the ledges, move right to the second crack and go up. I'd recommend the R.J. Secor guide as the best source I know of.

As for the center of the orange patina, you may be looking at Lucifer's Hammer, III, 5.10a, FA: Sept. 13, 1997 ... more >>

Comments: Taken directly from the Secor guide, South Crack III 5.9, a sustained, 10 pitch route with lots of hard off-width and chimney climbing. FA: July 1962 by Tom Condon and Ron Dickenson.

Comments: Will is spot on in his description. We thought the grade was about 5.9 going straight up.

Comments: I thought the lower crack was harder than the upper steep reachy move to the jug. The crack was sustained. Rests on the crack were small.

Crack on Touch and Go was a little bit easier, but clearly so. I'd put the crack at 10a.

Comments: I felt the dihedral was easier than 5.8

Comments: Hmm, i considered going this way. The dihedral was suprisingly more secure than it appeared. The hardest part was committing to the first move.

Also, the pro was abundantly available in the dihedral, unlike it appeared to me from the base of it.

How difficult was this variation?

Comments: I pretty much agree with Donno. It's a nice photo showing one of the prominent features of the route, but the gear beta is too much. My 2 cents.

Comments: You can also follow the undercling out right toward the gulley/trough, which protects better than getting to the el whampo thin seam. undercling variation is about 5.7

Comments: For those consulting the old Vernon guide, I should point out that he lists the start of this route as the Charley Knapp Route. If you look closely at the three or so references (photos, maps, descriptions) to this and Charley Knapp Route you will find some conflicting data.
