Annual Raptor Closure at Bridge Creek Wall area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Obvious splitter hand to finger crack on right side of crag. Starts out easy, steps left to excellent left trending finger locks, finishes with crux thin face moves after crack pinches down. Save a small cam (red C3 size) to protect crack prior to crux face moves. A bit soft for 10b.

Also known as Air Force Crack.

Location 

Start in easy hand crack on right side of crag. Rap route.

Protection 

Standard rack to 2" should be fine. Nuts would work well too. Two bolt anchor at top is shared with 4-5 routes on same slab.
