BETA PHOTO: Bushwhack Crack, Old Rag, Virginia, April 2008
Fun, solid hand crack. Depending on your hand size, the crux could be the bouldery start, the wide funkiness in the middle, or the thin hands at the top. Hexes work great on this route and lighten your load-I used my#3,3.5,and #4 camalots in the first 20 feet and wished I had more cowbell all the way home.
Follow Eric Horst's book. You're gonna get lost anyway.
From #1 camalot up, big hexes, extras in wide sizes handy.

Great jam crack. My favorite route at Old Rag -- perfect hands and fists nearly all of the way (as for wide gear, I used two #3s and one #4). The crux is definitely the hike in (well worth it, though).

I'm definitely bringing tape next time. Super burly and ultra classic line.

It was Alex Badart that told me Cal Swoager, or Mike Artz did a onsight solo (1980's).

Fun, steep, and stout. The belay is under the roof. There are some old fixed nuts with webbing going directly through the wires that are used to lower off.
