This crack is fairly fun, yet there are better cracks in the Platte. The crux seems to be right at the start. There is a good hand jam and pro here, but the feet are not very good, and the rock is steep. Above the start, there is a small, level place to stand in the crack. There are several of these good places to stand on the way up. This makes placing pro easy. The crack is slabby near the top. I would not doubt I have the second ascent, but I am not claiming it.


This route is the middle of the 3 routes on the wall and climbs a crack. It starts on a small ledge, by a small tree, you get to from the left. It anchors to the same tree as Over So Soon, and you walk off to the left.


Standard rack. There is a tree at the top for an anchor. It uses mostly hand-sized cams.
