|Out West Crag

This is a good, hard pitch with most crack sizes represented. I found it to be a bona fide Kimball sandbag at 11a that felt more like mid to hard 5.11. The bottom section is hands, if I remember right, the middle section involves some tips jamming and thin face moves (this is where I whipped out of it), and the upper part is fists to chimney. The transition out of the middle section was hard and a bit spooky as well.
This pitch is on the skinny East face of the crag. A crack line comprised of three sections separated by horizontals leads to the summit.
Scramble down the Southeast corner of the formation.
Standard rack / RPs and small cams.
