Avalanche Wall

Description 

The centerpiece of Avalanche Wall. An elaborate crack system breaks through the blank steepness and yields a very fun, sustained climb. Start directly and use the main finger/hand crack as well as the thin flake out right to reach a pod. Shake out and layback up the wide upper bit. This is the crux and makes for complicated climbing.

Location 

Smack in the middle of the Avalanche Wall slab, left of P.M.C. 1

Protection 

Small nuts on lower half. Standard rack otherwise.
