Short but stout crack in a left facing corner. Obvious green corner to the left of Cannibal Gully. Donner Summit 5.9+ (i.e. 5.10a). Super fun with solid gear.

4 out of 5 stars too short

this would be an ultra-classic if it were twice as long.

5 out of 5 stars Clean crack climbing.

The route was nice and comfy. It swallows gear like a champ. It has some of the best hand jams of all time and I'm primarily a sport climber. This kind of crack could really get me to change my tune.
