This is one of the best cracks I have climbed at Independence Pass. Start by stemming up an open corner and make some strenuous moves to get into the splitter crack up above (splitter for Independence Pass at least). Jam the crack up a right-facing corner to a large ledge with an anchor.

This crack starts out as big hands and fists and narrows down to ring locks and fingers as you near the top.


This is the next route right of Honest Abe. Just look for the obvious crack in a right-facing corner.


Standard rack to 3.5" or 4". 2 bolt anchor with slings at the top. Smaller gear can be placed where the large cams fit but is a little harder to get in.

This is an awesome crack that deserves a better anchor. As of June 2016, it still features a bunch of sun-faded tatt with a rap ring and a quicklink. We cut off some of the especially bad webbing, but it could really use some chains! Just my two cents.

Old school .10a, a #4 is nice to have once you step up into the wide area. There is a fixed cam in the way back that you might be able to clip with a long sling. Newish webbing and double biners for an anchor as of today (not mine). There are rest spots, use 'em!
