Description 

This is a good seldom climbed crack with jams of all sizes over multiple cruxes. Starts out wide, then pinches down to tiny as hard moves take you out right. Begin moving up again through a short cranking crux until the crack opens up to tight hands. Follow this steep tight hand crack with good quality jams that starts out at 5.11 then get easier (5.10) as you get higher to the anchor. Sweet pitch!


Location 

Just left of the tunnel. Look for the left facing corner behind some small trees.


Protection 

Standard rack. Have a good variety of small gear so you will have a piece in that you feel good about before entering the crux. Extra #1.75 - #2 friend.

Jason Price introduced me to this gem. You can see the top half of the climb from the road. If you are just breaking into the grade, a top-rope can be placed by climbing Eat at Degnan's first then scrambling over. I can't remember if Land Shark has chains at the top or if its set up from slings around a tree.

New two bolt anchor with rings. Quite dirty, but it is worthy of more traffic. This might be one of the shortest approaches in the park? In summer, the route is shady until about 1:30 or 2:00.
