This route follows the splitter crack on the north side of Podunk. Climb the crack, then follow a short face to the top. Protection is good, and one rope should be adequate for the descent.


Standard Rack, hand size pieces are probably best.

OW and slightly overhanging start. Good stuff

you can belay off this horn or there are some cracks on top for some cams. I belayed from here and then we scrambled around right to the summit.

Protection is good?? Bwahahaha! Yeah, it's excellent until the last 25', which are just above a ledge. Let's be clear, the crack does not go to the top, and it can only be called 5.6 if you finish it from the south side of the ledge as a second pitch or with heinous rope drag. The direct is 5.10+. Excellent outing, nonetheless!
