This crack line was named based on the very old "Fred Rasmussen" scrawled with axle grease on the rock at the base of the climb. A rather short but enjoyable hand crack leads to a large ledge. Probably the most popular climb on the wall.
At the far right of the area. Scramble up to the high spot on the upper east side and look for the name.
Gear to 2". Rap Anchors at the top.

Finger to hand size jam crack. Sustained jamming and decent exposure make this a must do on the Upper Breadloaves East buttress.

Wish it was about 50 feet longer.

I agree with Sqwirrl. Not the 80' that the guidebook says it is. Cool climb though.

Fun and sustained, just a little shorter than I hoped it would be. The 11 pitch above looks great.

A little tougher than I anticipated. The first crack was fingers for me (5'11" 175lbs). The second crack was wicked smooth (polished?) and half of it was thin hands, which ultimately made my jams feel only semi-secure. Good route though, just not what I was anticipating/wishing-for (Indian Creek splitter crack, haha)
