  • Description 

    About 100' feet up the bottom from the Cresent is a wide crack in the face. Forty feet further north locate two cracks that criss-cross about mid-face. Ascend cracks about 200' to where they fade out. Then run it out 60' to the top.


    Cams-bring the whole rack. The crack leading up the face on the first pitch will take up to a #2 Friend. The belay at about the 150' mark can be protected with smaller cams-.5 to .75. The belay on the ridge will take the big ones up to 4".

    Better than it looks. Left side of water streak is more solid and cleaner than the streak itself.
