Potential road closures in winter. MORE INFO >>>


Route follows the obvious crack in the dihedral up to a ledge and then under the roof and continues to follow the crack and slanting ledge. Crux is traversing under the roof to the face.


Starts a few feet to the left of Practice Crack (aka 5.6 Crack). Follow the crack up and left to the anchor of Silent Rock. Bolted anchor at the top.


Standard rack, medium cams.

Nope, Mark's got it right. Jerry's Route is on the wall to the right of the 5.6 crack.
