3 out of 5 stars Czech Crack

This route is sandbagged even by Jtree standards. A few challenging moves up a thin crack off the deck (edge up high and to the right) reach the fist-crack running through the roof. This fist-crack widens on top making the pull move challenging for this grade. Once through the roof, easier cracks lead to the top of the formation. There is a mid-rap station at the top of Pony Express half way up the wall. There is a lone rap hanger at the top of the formation directly above Czech Crack. You can scramble off the right side as well. I placed a solid micro cam on this pitch somewhere. With Stacy.

4 out of 5 stars fun crux

Getting to the roof crack was the crux for me. The gear is a little tricky, and the jams are pretty painful. The roof crack is a couple of fun moves -- nothing too bad if you've climbed similar terrain before.

Fell from the bulge then work on it to get it somewhat clean.
