The Rack w/a Rack part 2

Description 

The Rack can be found to the right of the obvious chimney on the east end of Two Pines Buttress. It is easily identified by looking for the right-curving overhang/crack. Start the climb by using ledges to make your way up to the crack. Jam the crack up to where it turns to the right. From here traverse right with hands in the crack and feet smearing. Once you get to the end of the crack (near the corner) mantel up to the ledge, then continue up the south-facing corner and face to the top.

This is a super fun route. Huge holds the whole way with great movement except for the slightly awkward mantle.

No good pro after the crack and mantle for a few moves. Gets a little exposed (For DL) there too!

the beginning of the route is the best...after the first 20' the route more or less becomes an adventure climb to top... good lead...slung a tree for pro
