  • Description 

    The left side of the Split Block forms a distinct, left-leaning arete. Just to the right, a series of small cracks and flakes runs to the top of the wall. The climbing is engaging, but it takes some effort to rig an adequate protection system. The first ascentionist didn't have that problem - he soloed the route. I no longer recommend that particular style to anyone other than my fiercest adversaries. If you're going to hike to this crag, it is an enjoyable must-do line.

    A 50 meter rope (if one still happens to have one of those) will work fine, with plenty left over. Be aware that a tree has fallen at the top of the climb, and that a rappel rope would lay right over it, semi-precariously. Not a deal-killer, but something to consider. Something else to consider is that...you can walk off...either way.
