Shirley leading the very nice Crackmaster Lambada.


Great sustained trad route reminiscent of the Smith gorge. Spotting the right feet keeps the pump factor down.

there is a chain rap anchor on this. A good climb, be sure to protect lower portion well, and watch out for loose parts.Cleaner then it used to be, but still choosy.
I added a bolt and chains to this anchor in 2011.
I suppose everyone has different tastes, I still think this is a solid 10b, and pretty sketchy chossy too.

This route is awesome. Long, sustained, great gear, and very thoughtful and interesting movement all the way up. The last 20 feet are especially stellar.

Deserves more stars.

Save a .75-1" piece to protect the top.

Stellar climb, and I can echo the sentiments that this pitch deserves more stars. The largest piece I took was a single #2 C4, and I didn't end up placing it.

My rack was the following: single set of C3s from grey to yellow (00 - 2); single 0.2 X4; doubles of C4 from #0.3 - 0.5; and single #0.75, #1 and #2. You will want micronuts for the thin sections of the route.

I didn't find a place at the very top to use a 0.75/1 sized piece. I used a #0.2 X4 at the very top and that proved to be a bomber piece. Lots of loose bits in all the alcoves that you encounter along the way.

There are plenty of rest stances throughout the route, and there's even an alcove you can get a knee-bar and no-hands rest in! :D

Awesome climb! Really soft for its grade. It eats nuts! Small nuts in particular. BD4-8
