BETA PHOTO: Fall is in the Air- the crack up the corner.

Find the climb to the South of the obvious downclimb between the Falls Wall and the Zoids. The crack is a striking clean crack in a dihedral. Start the climb by going up an easy slab to the base of a hole. Climb the dihedral, stemming to the plentiful face footholds.


Bring smaller cams #0.5-1 Friend/TCU/nuts for the crux crack and bring a larger piece #3.5-4 Friend to protect the deceptively wide finish to the route. A toprope can be set up off a small tree and gear.

My mistake, and I stand corrected. The FA was indeed by Chris Drysdale, not the Hanson bros.

The rock here is very pebbly and bumpy. I found the route somewhat unpleasant due to its roughness. I also had doubts about placing gear between the little pebbles in the crack. Cams seemed somewhat awkward and hexes / nuts didn't lock in very well. The route is not hard or deceptive though, so it's OK if you're comfortable at the grade.
