Razor Crack, 5.9

Razor Crack 5.9- 5c 17 VI HVS 4c  OR : Greensprings
Rated 5.7 in Greg Orton's guide book. That is quite a sandbag! Or maybe a mistake since the topo on page 45 indicates the crack as a 5.12b. Most importantly, Razor Crack is the classic finger and hand crack of Ashland, Oregon. Morning shade is pleasant, even when Ashland's high temperatures are in the 90F range.There is poison oak, hidden amongst the Oregon grape where you may want to pile your rope. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in OR

Great climbing on polished granite. There are a lot of sport routes out here. For a more complete guide check out Greg Orton's guide book for the Rogue - excellent resource for Southern Oregon climbers.

I don't mean to be rude or unkind, but the rock at Greensprings is neither granite nor glacially polished. Orton's guide describes it as columnar basalt. I would agree that it is extrusive, but not basalt. The rock is very light colored for basalt, closer to rhyolite.

And, I agree with Joshua's main point; that there are a few cracks at Greensprings that provide some of Ashland's best training for slippery Yosemite cracks.
