Description 

Finger crack dihedral, crux is low-mid on the route. Two or three mantle moves are tricky but the highlights are a beautiful finger crack in the dihedral and stiff liebacking moves to pull the roof above.

Location 

This climb is to the right of the Kachemak Crack area and is located in a dihedral with a roof near the top. You can access the chains by hiking the trail in between it and Kachemak Crack and heading up and around.

Protection 

Bolts and gear. The climb could use more bolts in a couple key places.

black bolts are an anchor for something? possibly unfinished...can utilize as a bail option for salty dawg

yes, the unknown dihedral as mentioned in the route description is yellow. there are more then one bolts on it though I can't remember exactly how many. there is also a two bolt chain anchor on top. McKenna bolted it, Kilcher FA'd it. We are still planning on finishing bolting it.

Green is unexplored, no anchors on top.

2 bolts left of Salty Dawg appeared out of nowhere and for no apparent reason. Probably something as silly as a local youth received a bolting kit for christmas and just had to try it out.
