thedusAscent of West Crack  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2006


Climbed this route during a "tour of the classics" day that included Hermaphrodite Flake to the Boltway (South Crack had slow parties on it), West Crack, and Fairview Dome's Regular Route. This is a stellar route with amazing climbing and solid protection. It was made even more enjoyable by linking pitches with a 70m rope. The walk off isn't bad at all - it's steep hiking down grippy granite slabs that are covered in huge knobs.

Climbed with Kris as the last climb of her first trip to the meadows (and her first time ever climbing outside!). We had to wait 2 hours to get on the climb on a Sunday but it was worth it. The 5.9 face move on the start seemed pretty easy to me, so I'd say the crux was the 5.8 roof, especially since the second of the team above us fell off while I was waiting to move up to the belay. The only problem was on the 3rd pitch when I was half way up the crack and the rope, which was flaked into the crack below the belay (my bad) got stuck. I had to down climb the crack to help free it up. The view from the top was wonderful, especially of the Sawtooth range.

We did this route after descending from Sentinel in the Valley earlier in the day. Needles to say we finished in the dark!

Climbed with Brian Decker on a cold, windy afternoon. The "roof" at the start of the second pitch was pretty awkward.

Great route. The crux pitch seemed hard and sustained for 5.8, but the "10b" step down move was easy and well protected (you don't need the "tiny cam" that ST suggests). Because of rope drag we belayed just after the "crux" move, and did one more short pitch up to the top of the hard.

Great climb! Led every pitch. The 5.7 fingers and 5.4 upper slab were linkable with a 70m. 3/4 class slabs for south descent were a fun descent.

Great climb! Excellent rock (of course), fun mix of crack, face & a fun ceiling- the quick blast up to the top with proficient partner Kevin made it quite enjoyable. Great weather that day. Quick & easy rap back down was pleasing, too. Finished up the day with climbs of Phobos & Deimos.

10.12.'15- Blown Away with Van. Led (& flashed) all the pitches (well, flashed after P2; had done Ps 1 & 2 before :) ). Exceptional climbing (P3 is money!!!) & rock on a beautiful day with a wonderful partner!

Crescent Arch with Rachel- led all of the pitches (redpoint). Great climbing on a great day!

7.19.'8: did Cooke Book (led Ps 2 & 4) & Crescent Arch (led Ps 1 & 3; I'd say the .9+ rating is accurate) w/ Rob. Great fun, awesome (& sustained!) climbs!

7/16/'6- climbed with Rob Yang. Still the classic climb I'd done before, but led pitches 1-3 this time. Great weather, exceptional route, & enjoyable company. Losing the cams certainly sucked, however. Felt a little bit off that day. Also led Witch of the West the previous day- also a fun climb! Want to go back & lead the pitches I followed last time (only led 1 pitch- the 2nd). Fun Fun!!
