Albeit a short one, this crack line is worthy if you are chasing down sunny cracks at Indian Cove. The start is a bit punchy, but all there at the grade. Smooth sailing hand jams and juggy holds after that. The rock a bit crunchy but well worth it. Rap rings at top.

3 out of 5 stars Lead-er be ware =)

Pro is not bad if you are sure to set it good. I kicked out one piece as I climbed. Used a lot of nuts in the start, and cams in the finish. All under 3. It was a pumpy start.

4 out of 5 stars crackie crack

This inclined left leaning crack in the middle of the south face looks easy if you know you have great footwork, but the difficulty comes with the pro.

The crack is thin and shallow, and there's not particularly good jams to be had even for fingers, which means pro doesn't exactly sit well (even nuts) especially if you want to use what little is available for hands.

This all ends at a roofy bulge with a thick crack that is easily pro-ed and straight forward to pull, and then you're there.
