A classic crack with great protection. The crux is the first couple of moves right off the ground. Be sure to get some gear in right away. This would be a great lead for beginning leaders. Two bolt anchor.


Crack running up right center of wall.


Standard rack.

Takes mostly smaller pro but for kicks you could put some 2 or 3" gear up top.

Fun climb. Safer to park up the canyon by Hole in the Rock wall.

This is a pretty thin crack. Especially down low. The pro isn't exactly straight forward. If you're bored with 5.6's give it a go! There's some nice jugs halfway up, so it does get easier.

It looks like someone chopped the bolts. You'll have to lower from the anchor chains on another route.
