Description:

A fun introduction to crack climbs in the Wichitas. Steep beginning with a slabby finish. Climb a wide crack in a right facing dihedral to a splitter hand sized crack that spilts a nice slab. Once called "Old Piton Crack" rumored to have been climbed by Bo Patty in the 1920's or 30's; probably as 3rd class.

5 out of 5 stars Knee Drop

Fun lead. Without a lot of #2-3 camalots, you may have to run it out a bit at the end
