Seasonal Raptor Closure at Black Wall-Lifted 2016 MORE INFO >>>


This is a great introduction to 5.9 finger cracks. This climb starts out on a short, left leaning finger crack that joins a corner. Work the finger crack and stem to reach the hand jams at the corner's top (crux). Mantle on to a ledge and look right to an easy splitter up the ramp. This hand crack peters out about half way up the ramp but continue easily up the unprotected slab to a short corner and the anchors.


Located up and right of Moonwalk. This climb is best accessed by scrambling up the talus and broken cliff bands a few hundred feet north of Day Hike. To deproach, rappel down to the lowest ledge and scramble back down the talus.
Alternatively, you can also walk over to the anchors of Moonwalk and rappel Moonwalk and Day Hike.

See the PCT - middle topo for location details.
