  • Description 

    This is a short climb and is one of the easiest in the area. It has a big ledge about a third of the way up. It feels like the crux is near the ground, and it is encountered while getting to the ledge. The crack starts above the ledge. There is good pro in this area, and stemming and jamming feet in the crack seems like the way to get it done.


    This is to the right of the route Sabaki. It climbs a hand crack in a dihedral. You walk off from the top by going left on the Decolletage ledge.


    A standard rack up to a #3 Camalot. The anchor can be made with medium-sized cams so make sure you have some on the ledge.

    On Dec. 3, 1977, I led Steve Johnson up this, continuing up the bombay chimney that curves rightish, above. I recall exiting the chimney onto the ramp on its right, eventually. Steve was geologist living in Golden and wanted to check out the so-called Clear Creek Fault Caves. We could name this Fault Cave Crack.
