Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The second crack from the left of the guide cracks. Climb the hand and finger crack to a rest ~20ft. off the deck. Then climb the right facing dihedral until you can move onto the slab and bolted anchors.

Using only the crack makes this climb a bit harder. The moves are easy with technique but the many knobs in the crack are not too kind to the feet. For those who wish there're ways to bypass sections of the upper and lower cracks.

Location 

2nd Guide Crack from the left. Just left of the pillar.

Protection 

Standard rack. 2 bolt anchor or optional .5"- 4" gear anchor in the crack.
