This fun hand and finger crack climbs much better than it looks from afar. Decent rock and good moves with nice exposure.


This right slanting crack is on the west face across from the prominent Private Idaho dihedral.


Light rack stoppers to 2-1/2" CD and one bolt. Bolted belay/rappel anchor. Single rope rappel

This route and its neighbor, Breaking Bad, are excellent choices for 5.8 aficionados like me. The hardest part is probably right at the start. I kept putting in gear thinking that it might be getting harder along the way, but big holds continued to appear along the exciting exposed upper half of the route. Long slings on gear at the end of the traversing section help minimize rope drag at the top.
