Private Land-gate closed and locked by nightfall. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This finger crack starts behind a tree on the left side of the main outcrop and heads straight up passing a small tree to the obvious "gap" in the cliff. Exiting the climb at the top on a couple slab moves may be the crux of the entire route.

Location 

Left side of the cliff just to the right of Climber Sensitivity Training Wall. Walk down from the top if leading.

Protection 

Standard rack including some bigger gear as you get closer to the "gap."

This route has good protection and is nice for beginning trad leaders. It starts with a 20 foot finger crack to a ledge. It moves right (near the Sherpa Connection crack) to a tree you can sling, then follows a crack on the left side of a corner to the summit. The crack is perfect for a #2 Big Bro if you have one and want practice placing it.

Big pro would be best for the gap itself but not needed, smaller cracks available to the left
