  • Description 

    The crux of this short crack is at the bottom in the first 10' of climbing. It is easier up higher. This is a better looking crack than 5.8 crack but it still has a lot of lichen on it. The crack looks more appealing than 5.8 Crack and it has better climbing but it is too short to be a destination route. It is an all right climb to do as a warm up if you are already at this crag. There are lots of face holds near the crack.


    This route is the obvious crack on the corner to the right of 5.8 crack. This is a fist sized crack. Get down by scrambling to the north.


    Standard rack up to a #4 Camalot. A #5 Camalot will work but is not necessary. Build a gear anchor on top.
