Jay Harrison on the FA of crossway.


P1 5.6 G 140': Climb the R-facing corner, stepping up and left, following cracks and corners, reaching a distinctive, clean crack line heading straight up to the "Attic", a ledge with fixed anchors.
P2: 5.6 G 30': Hand-traverse left to a chimney and either ascend this or make a further step left under a spooky overhang, then up clean rock to the top.
Currently, this route is very dirty. Cleaned up, it would be a great way to access the Attic Anchor to TR other routes.


50' R of the lowest point of the crag, at a small alcove at a R-facing corner.


Standard modern rack with a full range of cams to 3 1/2"

Great climb for leading to the anchors for Second Job and other climbs at BAW.
