BETA PHOTO: Starting the crux on the FA


The centerpiece of the cliff. It's a great climb that will keep you thinking. Climb past the first 3 bolts at around 5.9. The next 3 bolts protect the sustained crux, up a thin vertical seam. Finish the crux and go right to a small ramp (bomber medium wire). Continue up then to the left-most exit cracks (which take great pro).
Abel Crawford was the first to settle in the notch in about 1793.


6 bolts and a few small/medium wires and cams. 2 bolt rap/anchor.
