Aubrey Adams leading The Incinerator Crack


It starts out with hand jams, but rapidly widens to offwidth. The crux is moving up to where you can get your leg in the crack. It is a good climb, but too short to be a classic.


This is a short, clean, slightly overhanging crack in a large dihedral - you can't miss it.


gear from 1.5 inches to 6 inches

Someone has dropped a large rock/ chockstone down this offwidth, probably making it easier at the crux IF you use this rock jammed in the crack. The rock wiggles around a bit when you use it (if you choose to do so), but....this being said;..the climb is still at least 5.10b. It's a cool and challenging climb either with or without the chockstone.
