Missionary’s Crack, 5.10a, 7 Pitches
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
6th and 7th Pitches- 50m- 5.8/ You are about 20m short of finishing the 6th pitch as laid out in the guidebook. This final 20m is on easy ground however. Run up the short corner above and turn hard left up easy ground to the top of a block. I advise bringing in the 2nd(s) here because the finish involves descending the other side of that block, crossing a large loose and dangerous block and descending into a gully that must be ascended to pop out of a hole at the top of Yamnuska’s western ridge. The 2nd (s) will be exposed on this final portion as they also must descend to the base of the gully before climbing upward.
