West side of Cube - Unknown Climber

Nice, clean crack, only wish it was 4x the length. Crux is right off the deck with a tricky entrance move. Overall, the crack is hand-sized and takes feet well, although there are adequate face features for hands and feet as well. Note, old guidebook called this 5.7, but the 2003 version up-rated it to 5.8.


Backside can be climbed near a tree to set a top rope, or descend. Also, a single lowering bolt remains at the top (without a sling or rap ring).


Pro to 3". A bolted anchor at the top has been removed (as of 5/18/08), Can be topropped by slinging a boulder with a HUGE piece of webbing (30'?).
