Rock Climbing Photos : Big Wall : Base of the Hollow Flake Crack

Base of the Hollow Flake Crack

Base of the Hollow Flake Crack

The base of the Hollow Flake Crack has none of the sinister characteristics of the upper section. It starts out as 5.5-5.7 hand jamming and liebacking. It's only above, where the Salathe route pendulums over to it, that it widens its fearsome maw and swallows climbers whole.

The lower section is part of the Bermuda Dunes route. You can also have someone lower you off from Hollow Flake Ledge, and TR the entire thing on one long rope.
