5.8+ to 5.12a depending on the path you take. Power crack climb, Starts out with wide foot and hand holds, narrowing and then spreading , narrowing and then spreading. The 5.8 section will then take you too the back of the crack and changes to face climbing. The 12a section is straight up ,choose a side and commit . The nature of this crack dictates that even a short fall could be fatal, Be tight with the pro.

Descent Options:

At the top of the 8+ there is a single bolt, but you can just walk down the back side.

4 out of 5 stars free solo

The first time I climbed this route was when I found it. I free soloed it ( not suggested). It seemed like a big cheese crack and I was a strong crack climber so I went for it with a harness and three cams. It turned into face climbing and I found my self near the top with the scare crow legs. Dynoed up and caught a descent jug. Laughed, cried ,and prayed. Will Rodgers shrine of the sun played climb every mountain and I walked down.

4 out of 5 stars A little for every one

I took my 11 year old son to this climb for the first time, he failed on the 8+ but made it through the first crux. The Will Rodgers shrine of the sun chimes can be heard with clarity and at 5:pm it plays multiple songs
