Jon Freriks on Tideline.

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


An outstanding finger/handcrack, one of the best of the grade in the Meadows. Lots of varied jams.


In the main Olmstead area. Check Falkenstein's guidebook for more details.


Takes a range of gear from blue TCU to a #2 camalot. A #7 or 8 stopper is handy. 2-bolt anchor at the top.

The first tough moves are trying to fight the barn door moving through the lower buldge to a good hand jam. Plenty of opportunities for protection. The next crux is fighting the pump through the upper finger crack which is a mix of great finger locks and thin pin scars, with one last hard move to the bolted anchors. Great climbing, great pro, feels longer then it actually is.

Nice line! Blew the OS, pumped out placing gear in the thin finger bit 2/3rds of the way up. Getting out of the overhanging fingers into the shallow flaring crack at the top was tough too! This climb, along with nearly every other crack in the Olmstead Canyon area, seep with water after a recent storm.

Woof, I must have been having an off day because these thing felt reallllly hard for 11a. Great climb that protects really well, and with nice next anchor bolts + chains on top
