Just about to make the split

Description 

Climb Double Dogleg to the point where it stars leaning left and then cut right to reach a splitter finger crack. Positive jams and edges work up the face to a thin frictiony move at the top that leads right to the bolted anchors.

Fun moves, good rock and bomber gear are found on this route, but the shortness of the climbing independant of Double Dogleg detracts slightly from the overall quality. Three stars out of five.

Location 

Immediately right of Rock Candy is this fine route that should not be confused with another quality route with the same name in the Sheep Pass area.

Protection 

Pro to 3", bolted anchor/rap (3/8")

Yet another fun route. Too bad it's so short. Nice slab finish.

fun! seemed easier than rock candy, but maybe just because it was shorter.

Felt the crux were the last few moves onto the slabs.

Enjoyed this route a great deal. The crux for us was definetely the split from double dogleg over to the thin crack, although the remainder of the route from that point has its challenges. Enjoy!

if you are doing this route on top rope i would advise going to the top of the route from the left. from the base of the climb go left a ways until you see a slanted wall that you can go up very easily. climb up that to get to the top (dont worry, it's not real climbing, but it's not quite a walk up). after you are at the top you will have to make your way back right to the climb......all in all it takes a little time to get to the top and then to the route, but it is the easiest way and is worth it for the climb.

The hardest part may be making the last unprotected friction move to top out. Make sure you place something in the end of the crack!

Top roped this after climbing double dogleg, great route on an even greater wall, can't wait to go back on a warmer day.
