About 100’ Right of The Cow is a series of left facing corners and open books. This is the start to both “Perhaps”, a Grade IV, 5.10 A5 route, and “The Grack” routes: Left, Center, Right, and Marginal. To the right of the corners and fairly low to the ground is a prominent ceiling. The Grack, Marginal route, begins under the right side of the ceiling. Climb 3rd class up and slightly left to ledge with a small tree. The fun begins here: Rope up and traverse left under the ceiling for 10’. Gain the face above the ceiling to a bolt, then 20’ up and right to a second bolt. Proceed up 10’-15’ to one more bolt. Following this is 40’ more of delicate face and smearing to the belay ledge. From here follow a flake system up and right for 30’, then traverse right 15’ and up to a bolt. After 15’ more, rejoin the flake system and follow it to the top. Bring extra slings to minimize rope drag. This climb is a Grade II, 5.9.
