Description 

If someone has the actual name of this climb and the FA I will update the info here. There is already an unknown in this area.

More of a seam than a real crack. From the ground it looks like it may clean up and have some potenial. After spending some time cleaning and climbing it on TR I quickly realized why this climb sees no traffic.

Find the crack/seam directly below The Slash. It has two fixed bashies on the lower part of the climb. Climb this seam passing the two bashies and getting in a few small pieces if you are leading it to a ledge. Grunt your way over the awkward roof and continue up the crack to the top.

This climb is very dirty, the gear down low is poor, and the roof move is more of a grunt than a cool move.

The only reason I'm posting this is so if someone else see this climb they may pass. Although the bolted climb to the right of this crack is worth doing.


Location 

Located on the slab directly below the Slash.

When traversing the base of Grouse Slab walk past Bearclaw. Instead of going up and left like you would go to the Slash and the other second tier climbs, go right and keep walking along the base of the slab. You will then pass a steep wall with a bolted 12A, keep walking and the next slab you will come to will have this crack.


Protection 

Small gear on the lower part of the climb, two fixed bashies. #2 Camalot protects the roof move. Gear for the top anchor.
