  • Description 

    It is hard to imagine that this obvious crack line is undone.... It was a little dirty, and the start is a little dangerous, but once you get past the bad rock at the bottom, there is good gear and fun moves on great rock. The crux comes right away and feels harder than it is due to suspect holds, lichen and bad gear above a bad landing. If you can play it cool for the first 20 feet, you are rewarded with great rock and protection. Near the top, the crack narrows down to fingers and splits like a Y. From the ground, this section looks improbable but turns out to be very fun.

    Location 

    Left of where the bolted routes start there is a wall with many cracks. This follows the most appealing line up the center of the wall. Walk off to the North East to reach the trail under the main wall of Blob.

    Protection 

    Standard rack. A #3 and #4 are helpful. An extra #3 would be nice for the top anchor.

    The rock is steep and smooth at the start, offering only tiny edges for your feet that are exfoliating, so be careful. Reach a jug after 15'. Be careful not to pull on the obvious hand-sized rock loose next to the jug. Easier and more enjoyable cracks and edges proceed, with good holds and gear. Enjoy!
