BETA PHOTO: Catholic Boy climbs the cracks that reach the grou...


Maybe in 1984, this could have been rated 5.7, but by today's standard it is a sandbag. Steep, flared cracks lead to runout face climbing up to a slippery dike like feature with intermittent, marginal pro. Be comfortable at the grade or say your prayers before getting on this one.


Basicly the first route you encounter on the approach trail, 100 or so yards down and to the right of the "Chips..." dihedral and immediately left of a couple runout face climbs sporting 30-year old 1/4" bolts.


Light rack, new 2-bolt anchor at the top. Rappel the route with two ropes, or a 70m might do it if you were to swing way left up the hill.
