BETA PHOTO: Twin Cracks. The 5.8 continues up the large crack ...


Start up the obvious twin cracks (crux), pass a prominent horizontal and then move left into a wide crack which narrows to a thin crack at the top.


Furthest route left on the west face at the obvious double crack system.


Gear to 3.5", 2 bolt anchor at the top

great 5.8 lead for beginner trad climber. Plenty of protection and good rests.
