Middle Peyote Crack (left), and Right Peyote Crack...


This crack had no apparent crux, but several moves requiring a little effort. The general protectability of the route and good rests from which to place gear make it a reasonable lead to push your grade on.

There are 3 obvious cracks on the E. Face of the Peyote Cracks Wall. The right-most of these starts with jams and gets a little wider as you go up. There are several moves at the 5.7 or 5.8 grade, but with a good set of cams, these can all be protected before commiting.

The anchor up top requires cams of various sizes and a long coralette or webbing.


Standard J-tree rack- a few stoppers, a few cams to hand/fist sized. THe route is mostly jamming from hands to fists and protects as you would expect as such.The route can be TR's from large cams in a crack above with either long runners or a cordalette.

The fist sized crack is very low angle and more 4th class. Unless 5.8 is around your limit I wouldn't bother dragging along those pieces. A couple mediums and a finger-sized piece for the top will be fine. Leave the stoppers on the ground.
