Access issues at the Lower Malamute. MORE INFO >>>


Great right hand facing corner crack. The description in the book says that it is easy than it looks... Felt pretty hard for 5.9. Delicate slab moves using laybacks and poor jams. Sustained climbing for the grade. (Links into Cider Crack 5.9 for the second pitch, or lower back down to do more climbs at the base of the Malamute)


Rap into the South side of the Lower Malamute. This climb starts at a tidal pool with a metal platform bolted to the base of the cliff.


Chain anchors, standard rack, mostly thin hands and smaller.

A great 3 pitch route (recently cleaned) can be done by linking Old Style/Cider Crack/Grub Street. Access is via rappel from bolts.
