The obvious crack right of Fall Equinox. A slightly angled start lends itself to big hands and good feet. After that it's plug and chug. Beware of the swing if toproping.


Standard rack is fine (#3 works well). One sling for a bolt if you're feeling scared. Anchors shared with Fall Equinox.

I decided to give this one a name if you were the FA and absolutely hate it I'm more than willing to change it.

Wait a second.... Are you saying you did the FA of the obvious 5.6 crack that is intermingled with the bolted "5.8"?

Absolutely not (I'm sure hundreds of people have climbed it)...I just decided to give the crack a name for the sake of the website and logistical purposes.
