Route Description

1 Pitch, 90'

The obvious handcrack/chimney, which runs the full lengh of the face, is Noonmark's most prominent route. Begin at an ancient lag bolt driven into the crack.

Sustained crack climbing leads to a lower-angled finish.

Can be either top-roped or led, but anchors are hard to set up.

Essential Gear

Large nuts are helpful, plus a standard rack.
