Probably the first crack climbed at Cascade Falls area? It feels every bit as tough as a down canyon 5.10 should. The late Galen Rowell was a great photographer and and even stronger climber. So go down to Cascade Falls and try this classic test piece!


This is the crack between the start of Crimson Cringe and Fish Crack. There is a bolted rappel anchor on top.


The crack takes great pro the entire way. Bring a single set to a #4 camalot, include an extra #3.5 camalot. The fingers in the pod up high (crux) are #.5 camalot sized.
