BETA PHOTO: October Crack, 5.8


There are 3 tricky spots:
1. getting onto the first sloping ledge
2. chimneying up and left onto the outside edge to avoid loose blocks in the corner itself
3. passing the final overhanging section.
Were it not for the scary pile of loose blocks in the alcove on the first sloping ledge, this would be a fine route.


8' right of Wayout Chimney, 8' left of the sweeping megaflake with a cave behind it. This is the obvious fist/arm crack running up the cliff.
A handy pine tree provides a decent rappel point.


Cams from tiny C3s to 4", doubles in the larger sizes.
