Nice Crack Climb
|1,827 page views|
Follow the crack past the crux at a small overhang (easier if tall) to a stance. Move left and follow cracks and flakes to another overhang, then right up crack to large ledge and pine tree.
Descend by walking off right (faster) or left (as you face cliff).
At a short right-leaning crack in a corner, just right of Easy Keyhole.
Regular Gunks rack. Tree at top for belay.

Slick start (rock is slippery) leads to a nice climb. Try the direct start, once you go up the layback start go straight up rather than traverse right. It's a one move variation, but, it's fun.

Did this on top rope today and it was a bunch of fun. I liked it more than Laurel, another nearby 5.7 crack climb. Three sections of interesting moves. Great way to end a weekend of lead climbing and drain the lasyt remaining energy from the batteries, then hobble out to the car.
