A slightly mossy start (thats shared with Blood on the Cracks and the OG start to Up On A Pedestal) lends to quality crack climbing with minor dime edging and smearing for a section leading into a rest under a steep roof. Beyond the roof positive jamming and helpful holds outside of the crack (a horizontal break half-way thru crux takes gear and hand slot) gets steep. Cruxing definitively eases beyond apex of steepness, with 5.8 climbing to top shared tree anchor above difficulty. Large tree anchor typically has in-situ anchor as it is a common ending point for the day, and is shared finish with adjacent routes.


This route is located at the end of the approach trail. To its left is Up On A Pedestal, with its obvious ledge at half-height. To its right is Blood on the Cracks with its obvious steep dihedral and widening crack.


No bolts. All gear. Bring webbing and cord to bridge gap between anchor tree and cliffs edge if you plan on top-roping after send. #00 - #3

Gear from 3/4" to 3", nothing smaller than BD #0.4. The pitch is 35m or 115ft, not 35ft. You will need a 70m rope to safely rap to the ground

False. I've descended this many, many times with 60m ropes of varying makes and models. W/stretch it just makes it.

So maybe we can agree that a 70 meter rope Safely plants you to the base and allows for yo-yo tr opportunity, while a 60 meter rope will barely get you there with rope-stretch so don't plan on tring post-rap or if you do get that TR quick before it starts receding up the cliff?
