BETA PHOTO: Giappo's Crack on "Where the Rocks At?" ...

Description 

Crux move is getting off the first fern-filled ledge. Hands aren't great, you just need to trust a high, smeared foot, but the rock is so slabby and has great friction, so it's just mental.

Location 

See picture for the route on the wall. Rappel down or climb above the anchor tree and walk off.

Protection 

Used cams and offset nuts. The crack is mostly flared, but finding bomber placements isn't hard. A little run-out at the top, but at that point the climb is probably 5.0 or 5.1

No fixed gear, but a decent tree at the top to anchor and rappel off. Or climb above the anchor tree to walk off and bushwhack back to the trail.
