Climb a mungy, low-angle left leaning crack to access the corner. The actual corner climbs well with lots of face holds and fun stemming. The crux is a short section requiring a layback. Traverses right at the top to the anchor.


This is the obvious arching corner left of Poking Holes in the Firmament. It shares the same anchors.


Single set of cams up to BD #3. 2-bolt anchor.

There appears to be some confusion as to the location of Bone Crack and Drew's Corner. Drew's corner description clearly says "one bolt and gear" which this route fits. However, the line drawn in the guidebook seems to indicate that this arching crack is Bone Crack. The line drawn for Drew's Corner seems to be going straight up the face.

Based on descriptions and shared anchors, I'd speculate that this is indeed Drew's Corner, with Bone Crack over to the left a few more feet.
