Description:

On the Coke Bottle, just around right of Walt's Wall. Starts on a platform left of Mainstreet, a start it shares w/ Bell Crack. Boardwalk grunts up a short, frigid chimney, hand-traverses left and around a corner (5.8+, well-protected but the exposure!*gulp*), and fires up the thin-hands splitter above. To prevent grotesque rope drag, most parties traverse PAST the crux splitter, set a belay, and then the second fires the crux. The traverse is often filled with water, which does wonders for your tape job. Descend by rapping 4th of July (165'+), Water Streak, or one of the Fall Wall routes (2 raps). After you've sent Boardwalk, try Bell Crack -- the gaping monster that continues straight up from the initial chimney. G'wan, it's 11a -- easier than Boardwalk.

The first pitch traverse seems alot harder than 8+, more like 10a/b. The second pitch crux is an amazing thin hands splitter! Endurance and speed are key.Excellent pro at the crux with .5 and .75 camelots.
