In the bushwhack corridor. Right side. In the most prominent dihedral, this offwidth/hands crack leans slightly left until it finishes at the anchors of Earth Tones.

Listen, if you're looking up at this climb, and then looking back down at your MP App to read the beta, then you've already hiked into old rag. You've already found the trail (or lack thereof). And you've already made your way to a lesser known area of a lesser known area. You are either super lost, or super desperate to find a good 5.7. And whichever of the two you are, you should do this climb.

You're gonna be dirty, but when you finish this thing, you'll be happy you did it. This is the anti-gym. This is pure adventure. It's 45 feet of hauling yourself through the unknown and some surprisingly great crack climbing. So lace up those approach shoes, tell your belayer to stand out of the way of debris, and enjoy the climb.

Extra points for moss removal.


In the bushwhack corridor. Line of bolts on earth tones to the left of Old Rags to Riches.

Earth Tones is on the opposite side of the corridor. Might want to edit the description. In the Horst guide #2 in the photo is called Assemblage Point 11b.
