Description:

Take the South Face Approach and then follow the Ramp until you are where the Sout and East Face meet. The crack is two cracks left of Hollywood & Vine and 4 cracks right of The Old Stake Ladder. Scramble/climb up to the top of a large block at the base of the crack. A rope on the scramble might be advised; a slip would mean "Big Air." This is an amazing and ever widening crack. Pitch 1 (160 ft) climb off of the top of the block and up towards the anchor bolts. This is an ever widening crack that starts with fingers and ends with fists. Some climbers find the crux to be in the lower, thin section. Others find the crux to be higher, in the hands section. Do not rap the route! Rap via Bon Homme or El Cracko. Meadows Finish will take you to the summit.
