Description:

Sadly one of the greater cracks in Humboldt county. The main reason being that is climbs a cool spire next to the ocean. Carefull with the slipperiness at the start where the crux is. Some loose rock about halfway up.

Descent Options:

rap rings of the backside of the spire.

4 out of 5 stars Hand jamming

Fun and perfectly sized hand jams the whole way. The 5.9 is only about 12 feet, then 5.8 all the way.
