Vince on Salt Peter


Fun finger to hand crack just right of condor corner. This route would be classic, but you can easily bail into condor corner, making it somewhat contrived. Rib on the right is on at the start, then traverse over into finger crack.


Small cams and one #3 camalot

Couple of moves of sweet finger crack, could use another couple hundred feet of it though.

Staying strictly in the finger crack is contrived, like Paul says. But the route Vinny is doing in Nick's photo is very nice. Could be a 5.6, depending on how much you use "Condor Corner" at the start.

The crux of climbing "Salt Peter" is resisting temptation to stem over to the left at the very least. Place left foot in crack in question and do all placements of right foot strictly to the right of the crack in question. Crack takes great cam placements all the way.
