Prime Meridan is accessed from the third anchor of Equator, making it a fun two-pitch outing. Prime Meridian offers all crack sizes from less-than-tips to squeeze chimney.

From the comfortable ledge, step right into and climb the flare with a crack that narrows from off-fist down to tips. Move right either at a small ledge into a handcrack corner or continue up as the two corners converge. Wiggle up into the unique, triangular squeeze chimney. Finish with the easy left-leaning handcrack corner.

Make sure to rappel or lower through the squeeze chimney to reach the third anchor of Equator, otherwise you may be dangling in space.


This is a second pitch, accessed by climbing Equator to the third anchor at a comfortable ledge on top of the obvious fin visible from the ground.


The rack used on Equator will protect this pitch well. Bring a double set from tips to #3 and one #4. Micro cams and a few small-medium nuts are useful.
