BETA PHOTO: Spring Break


Really Fun climb. Start up the finger crack/dihedrial to a ledge. Clip first and only bolt (Bolt is for Total Recall). Start up the windy crack system. Balancy moves. Chains at the top.


Next crack system to the right of UNR crack.


Trad, up to 3".

Spring Break is a bit longer than the 45' listed here, more like 60'+. This one was just pure jamming fun.

Actually, you might have climbed past the anchors...

Way to go man...

Who would have thought that the anchors would be at the top of the crack? Doesn't really make sense to me...

That climb was locked up in top rope carbonite. Smuggler scum like me shoulda known better, I must have had delusions of grandeur or something.

This climb is great fun. Make sure you have bomber gear at the start since its a nasty fall.

I'm from Utah, I'm coming out to Reno for a few days, and I want to introduce my buddy to some trad climbing. It says 3" protection, but reading some other routes it seems like the cracks are more finger cracks and hand jams. Do you think you can climb this or the UNR crack on a rack upto 1.5"?

Clipping the bolt is not necessary.
