Part way up Cherry Ball on the North Face

Falcon Closures from February 2 until July 15. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start up a broken chimney/gully (low 5th class) until you reach a ledgy top out about 20+ feet up and first(worthwhile) protection. Then traverse right onto the main face a couple feet until you hit the obvious crack (exciting & exposed). Continue up this medium to wide crack using face features and some fist jams/OW technique if you choose. Follow the crack to the top and belay on a big ledge (same as Dog Leg and Doggy Style). Some of the rock quality was questionable and pulling on face holds was like testing an aide piece, sometimes haha. This climb is not necessarily for someone breaking into the grade...it can be considered chossy and run out if you don't bring enough gear.

Location 

Down and left of Dog Leg about 30 feet, its the only other prominent crack on the Dog Leg face besides Dog Leg.

Protection 

There might still be some chock stones to sling occasionally, user discretion advised. Standard rack up to #4, possibly some doubles of bigger cams.
