The very northern end of the Breadloaves, home to a handful of crack climbs.

To descend, there is a hard to find 5.3 scramble on the right (facing the crag) or rap from slings at the top of Interceptor; this rap is less than 100' but I don't know if it is less than 80'.

Getting There 

Park at the waterpump, then walk around on the road to the west side of the UBL, then follow a short (100'?) trail and weave among some boulders to get to the climbs.

A deceptively overhanging (maybe 30 degrees beyond vertical at its steepest) hand and fistcrack, it's hard to really appreciate the steepness of this one without either climbing it or viewing it in profile, from just north of the waterpump parking area.Start in a walled in alcove (no need for a belayer anchor here) and climb up an easy (~5.8) left facing corner for about 30' to where the angle steepens. If your feet are getting cold, go right onto Tide Country (10b). Otherwise, place a high pi...[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
