Description 

The center crack of the routes located just around the corner and uphill (to the east) of the buttress with Huston Crack and Aid Crack, at Cob Rock. This route ascends a steep, right-facing dihedral with a handcrack for 15 feet, then slabs out and widens to fists/offwidth. Two beefy new rap bolts at the top.


Protection 

Set of cams, heavy on fist-sized.

First 15 feet is a delight. Perfect jams. Then it gets blah. There are some rap slings to avoid the gnarly walk off. Good if the place is swamped and you need to get a buddy from Houston out until the crowds die down.

Climbed it on 5/17/07 the first time, fun route- used a #3+#4 (BD)cam and then climbed up and left to a rap tree that drops you on the east face of cob. start has great jams, watch out for loose rocks when climbing through the broken area to tree.

Good climb, crappy descent.

Went up to Cob the other day and discovered a new bolted anchor above this climb.

Climb this to get your self esteem back up after doing Huston Crack. One of the bolts does not have a ring for lowering/pulling the rope. It could use a quicklink for sure.

Was up there today. Current anchor is 2 bolts: 1 hanger has a steel rap ring on it and the other currently has a biner on it.

I swapped the locations of bolt hangers and added a quick link to improve anchor. It's much better now.

Too bad the starting hand crack doesn't go on for 80 feet....
