Unknown climber on the start of September Song. T...

Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Primary a crack climb, there's a point in the middle where it becomes blank (hence the name). The various cracks you link up take textbook gear placements.


In the upper section of the crag, this route starts just right of a stump, directly below a series of three diagonal cracks at the top of the crag. The route, as done in the FA, goes more-or-less straight up at the top, touching all three of the upper cracks. Recent scrubbing and anchor placement might draw you left on the first of those cracks, but that take the grade and the fun out of it.


Eats finger sized nuts and cams. A few hand sized pieces can be used.
