Standard rack up to 2 inches plus 3 draws. Parts of the crack will take larger gear but it's not needed. The bolted anchor is set well back from the top of the climb (Metolius over-sized rap bolts).

Easy to protect hand crack leading up to a thin slabby face with 3 well placed bolts. First route reached at the top of the gully. On the lower wall - the rest of the routes are on the upper wall and reachable from the top of this climb or a scramble to the right.

Rap or scramble to climber's right

4 out of 5 stars Good pro

Good warm-up for the Memorial wall. Easy trad climb, then crux is the upper bolted section. More fun than the scramble to the left side of the upper wall.
