Handful of Crack, Fistful of Pockets, 5.9

  • Handful of Crack, Fistful of Pockets- 2 Pitches- 5.9/

  • 1st Pitch/40’- Scramble up to the base of the large flake. Sow up the crack with gear as you combine lay back moves with facial features and easily protect the pitch with medium-large cams. The upper part of the pitch is easier than the lower as the crack starts to narrow. You arrive at a bolted station with a solid stance on top of the flake.
    2nd Pitch/30’- Up and to your left is an unprotectable slab with two bolts leading to a two bolt anchor above. Traverse left, make a mantle move to reach the first bolt and then skirt sparse slab directly above to the next bolt, a tad run out for a sport pitch. I rapped the route with double ropes, but you can walk off north supposedly.
