2 out of 5 stars Chossy Crack worth a try if you need to get in some trad practice

This is one of the few moderate sport climbs in VOTM that I am aware of. It is about 60 ft roughly with solid bolt anchors not shuts.

It is worth trying if you have already climibed most of the sport routes on the patina wall. The crack is awkward and super chossy. Have belay wear a helmet it is not well climbed. There are some technical bits that require stemming if you are on lead. Also there are lots of horns to sling if you want to practice that technique. 3-4 really solid horns.

Definitely give it a try if you have climbed most everythinng else in the area, but give the classics a try first.
