The double cracks of Ski Tracks Crack.

Tricky moves off the ground lead to a shelf, then the real business of fingerlocks and thin hand jams up the rightward-leaning double cracks. Very fun!


Standard trad rack to about 3". Anchor is a tree and a 60m rope is long enough to TR.

a great route. If you are over 6' it is more like 5.8. If you are under 5' 8", it is slightly overhanging burly finger crack, 5.9+.

Watch out for critters when tackling this climb, I found a cluster of bats nested in the upper section just above the flake and a hornets nest in the left crack.

Cool climb though!

This one of the best single pitch climbs in Leavenworth!
