BETA PHOTO: The crack and the climb.

On the east side of The Headstone. If The Rampart Rages' (on the west side of Headstone) crak split the formation, this would be where the crack comes out on the other (east) side. Climb any route to the top of The Headstone to gain access to this line. You'll never find it by hiking. A single classic pitch.


Standard rack. Rap anchors on top.

This is a fun crack climb, but both my partner and I thought the first 10' was at least 10d in difficulty. The 9+ rating seems to be incorrect for the first section.

This route is definitely worth doing. Bring some super small cams for the little crack. Mid-10ish for sure, unless I missed something, which I usually do.
