Andy Hall on Rutabega


Easy hand jamming in a fine setting.
Up a 5.8 hand crack for 50 feet to chains. Descend from there, or (better yet), step easily right into Rutabaga and climb a 5.9 hand crack for another 40 feet to the chains on that route.


Start in the crack 2m left of Rutabaga.


standard rack with double in the hand sizes

first climb in squamish. just average by local crack quality standards but this thing is great compared to most other places. easy to jump right onto rutabaga and continue up to the next anchors. a 70 would get you back to the ground linking those.

This route definitely should be combined with Rutabaga (which provides the better climbing in the pitch). We were able to lower with a 60 meter and had about 10 feet of rope to spare. Great warmup for the tougher routes on the base of the grand wall!
