Description:

A beautiful 50ft crack/lieback that sits inside a dihedral. The crack gets progressively wider from bottom to top and has spit out many, many climbers. There is a link to a picture of the route above. Measured the route with my 60 meter rope, and the climb is exactly half the distance from the midpoint to the end of the rope. 50ft even.

Descent Options:

walk off

Forgot to setup the camera the first time. Plenty of energy to burn since there was none spent placing gear.

5 out of 5 stars Fun...

Coming back when I am not cold and a weak. I love the idea of a 70ft layback.
