looking up the crack
Nitka has steep, pumpy, and great varied moves. Unfortunately it is also a bolted crack. I know some would be infuriated by this but I fully enjoyed clipping my way up this one...
(The giant block/flake that forms the crack is completely detached, so maybe the bolts are a good idea. Either way your belayer would be crushed if it came off... so try not to think about that and enjoy!)
There is a giant boulder at the base on the right side of the west face. An easy scramble leads to the starting ledge above this boulder.
12 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
