Comments: JP.8d, I just looked into the Secor guide at the dihedrals. As of 2011 printing only the right of the two dihedrals has been climbed, South Crack, III, 5.9 sustained off-width and chimney (check the photo for more details). Two pitches go up left side of formation to the ledges, move right to the second crack and go up. I'd recommend the R.J. Secor guide as the best source I know of.

As for the center of the orange patina, you may be looking at Lucifer's Hammer, III, 5.10a, FA: Sept. 13, 1997 ... more >>

Comments: Taken directly from the Secor guide, South Crack III 5.9, a sustained, 10 pitch route with lots of hard off-width and chimney climbing. FA: July 1962 by Tom Condon and Ron Dickenson.

Comments: Will is spot on in his description. We thought the grade was about 5.9 going straight up.

Comments: I thought the lower crack was harder than the upper steep reachy move to the jug. The crack was sustained. Rests on the crack were small.

Crack on Touch and Go was a little bit easier, but clearly so. I'd put the crack at 10a.

Comments: I felt the dihedral was easier than 5.8

Comments: Hmm, i considered going this way. The dihedral was suprisingly more secure than it appeared. The hardest part was committing to the first move.

Also, the pro was abundantly available in the dihedral, unlike it appeared to me from the base of it.

How difficult was this variation?

Comments: I pretty much agree with Donno. It's a nice photo showing one of the prominent features of the route, but the gear beta is too much. My 2 cents.

Comments: You can also follow the undercling out right toward the gulley/trough, which protects better than getting to the el whampo thin seam. undercling variation is about 5.7

Comments: For those consulting the old Vernon guide, I should point out that he lists the start of this route as the Charley Knapp Route. If you look closely at the three or so references (photos, maps, descriptions) to this and Charley Knapp Route you will find some conflicting data.

Comments: I want to comment on a couple things sdrockstar81 wrote in their write up.

Mostly, I disagree that a 70m is a good idea. The only place they used the extra rope was on the first/second pitch, where he experienced "this was perfect except for the fact that the roof tends to auto lock the rope."
So, in other words, it wasn't perfect. Save the weight, use a 60m.

Secondly, I didn't find any 10a on the last pitch. I climbed the finger crack and did have a thin face move to transition into another... more >>

Comments: While it is short, what you do get is stellar. Very clean, smooth rock and excellent jams, even got a couple lieback moves, and tons of fun.

This one had me smiling at the top, such good movement.

Comments: If you are jacked up strong and climbing ALL the time... probably in the Needles..., this might feel like 5.5 to you.

For most mortals, this is 5.8 cruxes with sustained, dare I say, 5.7 climbing. I would tilt an ear to those who say the sustained climbing is 5.6

5.5 is a sandbag.

This is a wonderfully beautiful climb in a beautiful area. You are likely to have it all to yourself, if you get the season right. (not summer!) Combine it with a weekend trip to the brewery and you've got a perf... more >>
