Big Horn, 5.8
Crux move Marked.
3rd- 4th Pitches- 170’- 5.8/ I combined these two pitches by running the rope out on the climb from the 2nd belay and then rappelling down to a ledge at the base of the crack and then just down climbing solo back to the 2nd belay anchor. The beautiful crack on the 4th pitch takes loads of gear, larger gear lower, nuts in the middle and medium gear on top. The crux of the route if after the mantel move to gain a horizontal crack. You are left with little if any feet and a small finger hold on the left. Bomber holds wait above about 2’. The rest of the pitch is a breeze in comparison to the anchors at the top of the crack.
