BETA PHOTO: Crescent, 5.7 (Oscar Mayer)


Jon Skyes' "The Notches" ( names this climb "Oscar Mayer" and credits the FA to Uwe Schneider, but it seems to be the same climb as is called "Cresent" in RHall note added 3/28/17

A nice climb up a right facing corner crack, that leads to a bolt and then some nice balancy moves up to a really cool ledge. Finish up the left slanting exit crack to the trees


Left hand side of the left hand section. A little to the left of where the trail brings you up.

I don't know if the bolt has been replaced...but if not it should be! Also, one can scramble to the anchors of the face climbs to TR them.

Good climb. Just remember when leading it not to try to turn a 5.7 climb into a 5.9 climb at the crux.
