Wengerbanger is the wider crack in the center of t...

Seasonal Raptor Closure starts Jan 15 each year; No top access - private land MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Essentially a variation to the seldom climbed Wengerbanger, this route traverses right at a horizontal break at two thirds height to access a rapidly widening fingers corner. The traverse is likely the crux and the climbing only eases the higher you go. The climbing is excellent from bottom to top and should not be missed!

Location 

Starts up Wengerbanger. (right of U3)

Protection 

Gear to 2.5".

Great job guys. The fire across the river that day (my birthday!!) was so crazy. Two dollar beers at the Mexican restaurant made the day even better!

There is now an anchor for this route that can also be used for Wengerbanger.

Great route, combines the best part of Wengerbanger with some great jamming in the right crack, certainly as good as any of the 11- routes in the guidebook.
