BETA PHOTO: Crackmard & South OW.

Description 

Follow a wide crack up a slab. As it gets steeper, jugs appear on both sides. Hand-traverse right (crux), using awkwardly high but positive feet, into a chimney. Pull around the flake on the left and finish in the handcrack.


Location 

This is about 15 feet right of Cave Route.


Protection 

Gear to 3". If you want to protect the bottom, bring something bigger, but it's pretty easy. Smaller gear (0.5 or so) is useful for the anchor.

There's a chance that I just described and added a photo for "Wishbone Crack," but based on a few factors, I don't think so (there's no boulder to sling up top, there appeared to be several other climbs to the south, and this seemed harder than 5.6 - my partner put it at 5.8). If I'm mistaken, let me know, and I'll add this photo to the correct route and remove this description. Thanks.
