BETA PHOTO: not the best for a TR as you can see


The splitter crack on the West Face of Camelot Crag is one of those fun, short routes that leaves you wanting more and is over way too soon. Great hand and foot jams with plenty of face holds for the feet make this a fun little romp.


Just west of Castle Rock


Gear to 3 inches. No top anchors, and only a very wide crack on top for gear. Alternately, belay from below and behind the summit boulders.

Short but good jamming crack - with wonderful outlook across to the lake and beyond.

fun crack! would recommend for a beginner - intermediate climber.. i dunno if i would recommend a TR tho, you need gear 4+" in awkward crack..

i found what seemed to be a class 4 walkoff on the backside of this.. does anyone know of an easier way down?

The easiest way off the top of the rock is to the climber's left (north) if looking at the crack from the ground.
