Comments: There's a thin, thin crack, and just to the right of that a few feet is Ed's route, which looks a bit more like 2 thin cracks. I have not been on this one but am told that it takes gear and is in the .11+ range.

Comments: Wow, I wrote that comment 4 years ago and now have zero recollection of the route in question. My new assessment: unmemorable.

Comments: What was it that RR said in the old guide?

'A perfect route for the faint of heart...a bolt at your nose for every crux'

or something like that.

Worked for me :)

Comments: Great stances every 200'! Unfortunately, route was put up on 50m ropes. What would it take?....

Comments: The best way to get to Cramming is to take the trail to Tips and walk the base from there- the alleged eastern trail is more of a shoe-filling dirt escalator through poison oak on a steep, eroding hillside. Other than that, it's great!

Comments: It tapers down as you climb it; bring 'em all.

With a 70 and some long slings for the start I think it's a reasonable half-rope pitch.

But man, the guy's got an eye with that camera!

Comments: Lemme get this straight:

"pro to 2.5"

"right-leaning offwidth"


Fortunately this discrepancy is obvious enough from the base...
