BETA PHOTO: This is the Slapback crack as you approach .

Description 

Slapback starts up the obvious 2"-3" wide crack up a 45' finger of rock. This climb is all gear. Climb the first ten vertical feet to a rest then start the good stuff on a overhanging crack with good feet. Pull past a few small bulges and on to the top where you will have to build a gear anchor. Descend by scrambling down a 5th class gully on the right.

Location 

This route is located about 250' to the left of the approach trail. Look for a finger of rock that has a 45' crack faceing the lake.

Protection 

Gear to 4", Gear Anchor, Slings
