Roadside Crack

Description 

Stem the corner past a bolt (crux) and mantle onto a ledge, then step into the splitter (5.8) and jam your way to anchors. The rock is a little rough in spots, but feet are abundant, especially higher up.

Location 

Located slightly right of center and easily identified as a right-facing corner to a splitter crack.

Protection 

Gear to 2.5", chain anchor

The crack has teeth! ouch! I also pulled off a piece of patina and tested out my gear! Watch out for loose pieces on all the climbs one this rock. Judging by the amount of lichen and moss, they don't get climbed too often.

Definitely a little dirty. But many opportunities for good gear placement.
