Bush Crack

Rule changes for pets and trail closures 30 minutes after sunset MORE INFO >>>


A nice two section climb beginning with a flake to a good stance followed by a sweet finger crack to the top.


Look to the right of the southwest area for a wall sitting behind various large boulders. Bush Crack leaves a small space marked by a tree.


Bush Crack requires a standard rack with hand sizes up top to build the anchor.

This crack is great, friendly and just a little harder than 5.9. Sweet addition to the site!

Nice little problem! Once you get into the crack, placing gear forces a loss of expediency. Best to limit pro to one, maybe two small cams. As the caption says, it's over way too soon.

Fun route, though short!

Plenty of stances and bomber locks/jams from which to plug as much gear as you want. Cams up to #1 will let you sew it up as much as you want.

Setting an anchor that keeps the rope from angling down through the crack is tricky.
