Description:

The right of two cracks on the left side of Barney's Rubble (the wide crack on the left is the 5.8 crack). Easy climbing left of a huge slabby boulder gains the crack. Lieback and jam the clean crack while utilizing good holds on the face. The final moves involve bypassing a flake with a few mildly intimidating undercling moves.

Descent Options:

Rap or scramble off the wall.

3 out of 5 stars Not bad

Good quality crack climb with an interesting finish. Easy pro. Unfortunately the crack is short and half the climb is just getting to the crack. There is a short but fun 5.10 variation to the start that involves climbing the boulder instead of the dirty gap between the boulder and the face.
