Description:

On the south east side of the main face of Mt. Wilson, a massive crack formation is visible. This crack goes up for almost 700 feet without stopping, it is unique in Red Rocks. Move fast, as the approach is long, the climbing continuous, and the descent is even longer!

Worse route I have climbed in the desert. I am used to long alpine approaches and of course enjoy physical approachs actually, except when it involves cacti, oak scrub and holly for as far as you can see. Nasty approach places you below a dirty, sandy, crumbly OW....we combined the first two pitches and 5-6....so just 7 lead changes. The lower pitches are sustained OW chimney, the higher pitches are mostly junk except for one short chimney section at the end. The descent was longer than the approach. several raps. Long day, quite a bit longer than Epinephrine for us.

Did this as part of working on the book with Larry. A milestone climb/event in my life. Vitually the entire route is a 5.9 crux. Simply superb. Must be done.
