Kahoukers starts on the classic Crime of the Century. At the black spot left of the crack about a third of the way up, trend left across the slab to the parallel thin barely tips splitter. Climb this slabby tips splitter to its top and eventual trend right to the anchors for Crime.


Kahoukers is the thin tips splitter that runs parallel to the Penny Lane ultra classic Crime of the Century. The crack starts off the ground a ways so a start on Crime is required. It is the first set of crack lines seen when the trail meets the wall.


Protection is found in the crack of Crime of the Century and then, after the traverse, in the thin splitter. Good small tcu's and nuts. Use a few long slings to reduce rope drag. Chain anchors suitable for lowering at top.

Would anyone object to adding a few bolts to the seam above the Kahoukers crack so that it can be climbed as a stand-alone climb to the top instead of walking R onto the Crime slab?
