What is that 5.12 crack at the top? Is it good?

It's a super thin seam that was full of moss. We didn't have small enough gear to try it. You would want lots of rps and doubles to purple C3. I'll photos a photo later of the crack.

Cool, thanks Luke. The rock is so stellar up there, when I saw that on the topo I figured it was something good.

It's called Fault Line. 5.12 is a legit grade but keep in mind it's far more slab climbing than crack. It's also quite a bit runnout at the top. It's a lot different climbing than the topo suggests.

A triple set of RP's would be nice. A black Alien would be the biggest cam you get, and only one at that. A few of the green and grey(?) C3's would be awesome.
