The thin start of Grass Crack.

Rule changes for pets and trail closures 30 minutes after sunset MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is the thin left leaning crack to the left of the Triple Cracks. The start is the hardest part of the route.

At the top of the large 5.7 flake careful to avoid loose looking sloping hold on the left. The hold will be obvious and look really good but weight it with caution.

Also just before gaining the 5.7 flake be careful of fall potential onto the large block on your left.

Protection 

Nuts and Small cams for the lower section. Larger gear for the final approach to the anchor.

Gear I used.
Bd nuts 6, 7
Bd Cams yellow c3, .4, .5, .75, 1, 3, (could have used a 4)

Anchor: 2 rap bolts with chains.

Another one of Erock's truly stellar traditional climbs.

High quality climbing. Excellent thin sequence in the first half. It stays good throughout.

for the full value make sure to not smear on the adjacent angled wall. Excellent lead with a variety of gear options.

Super fun climb. Stellar boulder problem at the bottom (crux) then really fun climbing to the top. Plenty of gear options.
