Climb the twin crack system. Fun.


At the left end of the area, this is the double crack system.


TR recommended, but it could be led. Use trees at the top for anchors. See Walk Up in the Book area for top access info.

I tried leading this today and found there was a lot of hollow/loose/rotten rock, so make sure you tap the rock when placing pro.

Didn't see any hollow rock, It's main problem is that the rock is kind of slick and dirty. Protects really well using all passive pro, with maybe one large cam at the bottom.
