This route truly is a dirty bird. Start at the twin crack system and work your way up through the often dirt-filled crack. You may have to use a tree trunk embedded in the crack as a hold (make sure to test it first). The route switches over to another crack on the left about halfway up the route. Continue up to anchors. Rap off piton and bolt. The route is full of lots of nasty surprises including thorny vines and of course lots of dirt. Good luck!


From S/N on the north face of the main wall continue walking deeper into the trees, following a faint trail for a couple minutes. On your left you will see a dirty finger crack with a twin crack start. The route begins here.


Mostly small gear. Microcams up to BD#1 and set of nuts.

Due to the VERY dirty nature of the crack I'm fairly certain it has not been ascended prior to our visit
