A straightforward crack with a low crux. Clean and elegant.


Approach from below. Left of and uphill from Hotline. Descent is by rappel.


Extra small gear. Easy to eyeball it from below. Can break into two pitches at an intermediate tree if desired.

Mostly .5 and .75" pieces through the crux. Pretty good finger jams with pretty bad feet. Save a 1" cam for the final corner crack above the tree. Also be mindful of a mostly detached block/flake on the right wall of the corner just below the tree.

There's also a new climb just left of Crashline. It climbs through knobs near the arete (past several bolts) and then maybe heads up into a crack system? We didn't try it but it looks interesting, though a bit crusty with lichen.

I didn't place anything smaller than green alien. It was nice to have 3x Green and Yellow Alien for the start. A .75 camalot, red alien and red camalot protect the final stretch of awesome jamming after the tree. You can rap from the top anchor with a 70m rope.

We cleaned a bunch of dirt and leaves out of the crack. Still a bit dirty though...
