Often tried and often backed off...there are actually some pretty darn good holds that seem to hide pretty well. If you hang on past the second bolt, it eases off a lot.

Absolutely goes trad. if you can muster the courage to ignore the big fat RED bolts.


5 bolts, hanger-and-ring anchors.

Climbed this one today for the first time. Did it all on trad gear, no bolts. I think it wasn't quite as hard as Turtle's Crack (AKA Martha), its neighbor, but I'm not sure. I used a few C3s (purple and green, I think), a small nut or two, a #2 Camalot, #3 Camalot, and I think the .75 and Camalot. Fun!

Mostly 10a/b except for the difficult crux with tricky footwork (2nd-3rd bolt) which seemed like 10c to me.
Be careful clipping the 1st bolt (it can be easily clipped from the West side of the formation, but very high off the deck).
You will want to rappel off when cleaning (instead of lowering-off) as the chains are runout on easy terrain (which is good etiquette anyway).

This route feels pretty hard until you find that thank God foot hold around the 2nd 3rd bolt. Once you've got that you're golden.

Good route for those at this grade as the crux is early and over quickly once you find the right holds.
