Thatcher Cracker – 5.10b (trad)

Recent Sendage:

  • 5.10b
    Very confused on the route finding. Went out to do Ears Between, but decided to go far left, over an easy ramp, and into a fun dihedral hand/fist crack system (5.9+/5.10-). Then proceeded up a featured chimney with loose death blocks and into a hard off-width move made more difficult by a loose foothold that was off-limits (5.10b). Final pitch was an unprotected chimney with limited features (5.10b?) and a romp to the top of the west ear. There was thankfully belay rings that brought us to the backside of the ear, leading us then to other belays down the scrambley face.
