BETA PHOTO: Derek's Crack


There is a crack on House Wall, and Derek was the first to climb it.

Should you wish to follow in his footsteps, you may want to bring a trad rack with you.

The rock can be a little scary and placements not always straightforward as some aspects flare out (you may want to try out some of those off-set DMM nuts, they work wonders!)


Crack in the middle of House Wall


Rack to 1". You can probably fit some pink tricams in there. But pink Tricams fit anywhere. Pink Tricams are great. I love Pink Tricams. I'm not sponsered by C.A.M.P.

Not as good as it looks. Expect 5.9 moves well above marginal gear.
