The "There is no way this is a 5.10" Cra...


Do an easy but funky move to get on the rock. Face climb past 2 bolts to get to the crack. A short crux (.75 camalot?) leads to a nice handcrack, which leads to a bolted anchor.


This is the first established route encountered while hiking up-canyon from 89a. It is an obvious splitter crack on the right with 2 bolts down low.


2 quickdraws, plus a single set of cams from .75 thru #3 camalots. An optional #4 camalot can help protect the transition from face to crack. Rap off bolted anchor.

hard to imagine a better little crack for the non 5.10 trad leader to try to push their limits- 2 bolts before you get to the crack, and once in the crack the gear is super solid, plus anchors. Thanks! to whoever put this up.... nice climb. i'd bring .75, 1, 2, and 4 which pretty much sews it up

little stout for 10a/b but one of the best sandstone cracks near flag
