This is the crack that peters out at the top. It is very obvious from the Torpedo Tubes and Friday the 13th. It is not the death route that all the guides claim it to be, but I'm sure it was back in the day during the FA. It is a surprisingly varied route. There is a substantial run-out midway, and your last gear is not really all that comforting. I think it would hold a fall, but not positive-I did not test it. There is also good sized runout at the top. An R rating is adequate. The climbing is fun, and if you have a decent lead head, you will have no problem. The route felt more like 5.11b. Trusting the crystals in the runouts was the hard part, but they all proved to be solid.


RPs through #4 Camalot.
