Battle Crack


Fairly sustained 5.9 with the crux probably being about 10' up. Start left and then work up and right with the crack.


Farthest left route on the west face.


Pro .5 - 2", save a couple cams in the .3 range for anchors.

The name of this route is "Battle Crack" (5.9). Sorry Jeff but you missed the FA of this route by about 20 years.

Haha figured. A crack like that must have been climbed before.
