Locate the wide crack on the right side of the wall (right of the large roof)

P1- Climb the wide crack, passing the first grassy ramp, and continue straight up the beautiful chimney. Set up a belay on the second grassy ledge (140')

P2- Move up the grassy ledge and step into another nice chimney with a crack in the back. Follow this to its end. Continue up and left to the summit. (80')


Apollo Crack is located on the right side of the wall. The wide crack to the right of the big roof is easy to locate. From the summit, down climb a short distance to some chain anchors. Make two single rope rappels to the ground (bring a 70m or tie knots in your rope!)


Nuts, hexes, cams to #4 (optional #5)

(Easier but exposed climbing further out, sustained squeeze further in by the gear)
