P2 start. Great crack climbing above.


Described as a classic East Animas crack climb, this takes on the obvious crack to gain a ledge. From this ledge, belay your partner up and go to the obvious crack (5.8).


Classic East Animas rack.

Steep fingers off the deck and then the typical east a wack factor in a flare. Good climb.

I thought it a tad stiff for 10a, but then it's all relative. Short- yes, fun- yes. Classic??? Once again, I guess it's all relative. I sure wouldn't hike up here to do it, but if you are here and you climb 10s it is not bad.

They used to call it 5.9 when they did it in the 1970s in EBs. I think it's classic in an old school East A way.

Actually Tim, when we did the FA of this climb, I was still mostly wearing the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Low Top Sneakers. EBs hurt way too much to wear for very long and as a poor college student couldn't afford 'em anyway!

P1: tips lieback into hands into East-A awkward pod (protect w/ #3). Traverse left to anchor.

P2: face climb immediately above anchor, get into wide hands/ #4 sized crack to a ledge, new BD #5 (two would not be a bad idea) protects upper stacked-fist sized crack to the top of the Picto Cracks/ Double Exposure area.

Anchor: gear belay or terrain belay as the leader could not get sucked through the wide crack the follower comes up and through.

Continuing up the infamous "Black Arete" is recommended!
