Angela approaching the start of the crack


A bindlestiff is a hobo who carries his belongings wrapped in a bundle attached to a stick carried over his shoulder. This route opens with a steep face start and slab cruise past a few clips to the base of the corner crack. Jam, stem and layback your way up the hands and thin hands crack.


Follows the obvious slab prow and corner right of the Lucky Streak area.


A few stoppers, cams #0.4 to #3 C4, with maybe extra in the thin hand sizes. An optional small cam placement can protect the boulder problem start.

A fun, solid, hand jamming line that is very clean and very sweet. Great feet through the overhanging bit and solid pro.

Rock will likely get a little better over time as it sees more ascents, but it is fairly good already. Good jams up high mixed with face-holds and layback moves. Start is actually easier than it looks.

Funky boulder problem start... Dirty alternate start to the Left? Once in the crack proper it seemed the best rock wanted to accommodate #1 camalots. I easily would have placed three. Didn't use the #3. Good stemming stances in the steep part. A crack jug haul....

Bouldery to slab to 40 feet of crack climbing bliss. This climb is fantastic and underrated. The situations are stellar for the grade.
