A fun fingers-hand crack that goes at around 5.7ish. One can also lieback some sections for a different feel. Climb up to the Oak tree ledge and use the tree as the anchor. Make sure your anchor takes the tree's health as well as rope-on-edge awareness into consideration.


This route is on the north side of the crag near the top. It is easily identifiable by being a clean crack running up to the right of a beautiful clean blank face.


-I use a #0.75, #1, and #2 C4 to protect the route. Bring a single rack of cams from fingers to hands.
-Cordelette or webbing for anchor + lockers

Taco's guide is spot on, but the area is really chossy. One of the few places I'd give the helmet to the belayer if I only had one.

Like Jen said, bring a helmet! This is the San Gabes. :-) Lotta rocks ready to pounce!

Definitely a good route, belay is pretty awkward in the snow. Bring some long webbing for the tree anchor or be prepared to have rocks raining down if toproping.

I cleaned a LOT of loose rock the other day from above the route as well as on it.

I have also started to make a sort of trail to and from this area of the crags. Real unstable, but now there's at least a stable place to sit, organize gear, and cook with a stove.

Good for you, Taco. Thanks for the time and effort. That slope and the approach are indeed unstable. Keep up the great work.
