B-29 (5.6)

This large crack is the lower (and harder) part of the 5.6 B-29 route. What makes it slightly challenging is the overhang in the middle of the route. Otherwise, it's not too tough. This route is the closest to the river and is not accessible when the water is high, as it was when I was here in March 2007.

The protruding corner shows the 5.11d/5.12a Vision Route. The route climbs the right side of the corner. The overhanging corner itself is the 5.9 B-52 route.
