FA: Marks & Leinau 9-05, Left wall on the west face. Start is about 30ft right of the cave. Behind a 10ft tall flake is a nice handcrack up to an undercling traverse right then up another short handcrack to a long 50 traverse up and left along the wall and around the corner

12/30/5 3rd ascent (AFAIK) - finally led this baby, clean clean! took a few passes at the crux, stepping back onto good feet 'til I figgured out the sequence - but no weighting of the rope. Sean and John dug the route, too . . . quite impressed, "looks wicked," etc. Nice one Chris - thanks for a classic!

(9/4/5)whew! Rad Line! Can't believe it was hiding there all this time, and Chris bagged it on our first trip out to Crab Eyes. Fine business. I sure should have taped up, though: I'm taped up now, in the aftermath having soaked & scrubbed the sores that were starting to hurt yesterday. Ouch. Great crack tho, nice long traverse left w/ tricky feet.

Had to clean out a shitload of vines, dirt and roots to get to this sublime crack. Cleaned up nicely and should be a nice moderate amongst the harder climbs at crab eyes. The lower traverse is really delicate with some balancy moves. Once up to the main traverse, there is a nice rail for the first half, then turns into a jam crack with nice rock/protection to the crux. The crack at the crux narrows down to fingers and the wall steepens with no feet. Interesting fun route
