WALK-OFF DESCENT: Head a bit west towards the city and down over boulders. Work some to skier's left and down until reaching a huge low-angle slab. The slab can be downclimbed by using the long sloping ledge with a crack running its length. Walk down the ledge and then downclimb (crux, 4th class) into a bit of grass at the base of the slab. Avoid most of the below bushes by traversing skiers right on grass and then up onto some jumbled boulders. Shortly, drop into a hole on the uphill side of the aid boulder and then scramble down to where the approach trail passes beneath the aid boulder shown in this pic.

The name "Christian Crack" comes from the old Loucks Guide. Gary Hicks indicates the actual name of that route is "Christian Rock"

Alongside the route Gemstone are some lesser known but still worthwhile routes. This photo is a marked-up version of a photo from Monomaniac.
