A-Frame (aka A Street)
|230 page views|
This is a great crack! Climb up the low-angle slab to the dihedral. Work the steep crack on fingers, hands, and stems. Clip the lone bolt and pull over the top. The run to the anchor is on easy, low-angle slab below the big roof. Crack ratings are always subjective; if you have fat hands and fat fingers like me, you’ll find perfect jams along the way, making this route a bit easier than the rating. Rappel to descend.
This is the obvious dihedral 20’ to the right of Third World Cantina.
Gear to 4” or 5” plus one bolt, bolted anchor.
Josh about to pull the crux.

In the guide that I have, they call the climb "A Street".

More strenuous than technical, but there are some slippery footholds. Chew Valley HVS.
