A beautiful wave shaped splitter crack that makes a "C". Starts small and gets bigger before finishing with a BD #4 cam sized traverse.


This route must be reached by doing an approach pitch. The best way is to do the unnamed 5.8 at the main section of the black lakes (the 5.8 dihedral system). From the top of this route (or any other route located at the central part of the black lakes) Traverse right (back towards Skagway). You will be traversing above the cliffs that are right next to the highway but below the upper cliff band. Just about when you are even with where the road goes betwean the two black lakes the route is on the left. Its hard to find but worth it!


Single rack of cams.
