Fantastic arching crack that gets steeper and steeper.


Right end of the lower malemute. Note-it is in the CN Rail right of way but not as close to the tracks as Hand Jive, Clean Crack etc.


Gear to 2", chains at the top

It is best to attempt this on a cool day, the face bakes in the sun and sweaty greasy conditions hinder ones progress.

Long and beautiful. Generally stays at a poddy fingers to off-fingers size for most of its length, so load up on these pieces (#.4 and #.5 c4s protect 80% of the route, 3+ of each will make it feel a lot more comfortable). A #3 protects the final moves to the anchor.

The low-angle ramp for the first half is steeper and trickier than it looks from the ground, especially when you factor in the pain of repeatedly cranking your feet into sharp pods. There is little opportunity for rest before launching into the steep and strenuous upper section. If 10+ is near your limit bring your "A" game.
