Description 

Short hand crack dihedral. A fun way to the anchors above the Standard deviation wall. Would also make a good first lead for someone with a small rack.


Location 

Right section of Standard Deviation Wall. Closer to main Climber's Loop trail. Stands out as obvious Dihedral


Protection 

Hand pieces, medium to large hexes would work well. Sling-able chockstones too... Plenty of ways to learn to place gear. Bolt Anchors at Top

Wow, you must have big hands. I thought I remembered this being BD C4 #4+ in size for the main crack. Definitely slingable chockstones though.

I would strongly advise AGAINST slinging at least one of the chockstones in there. Completely loose. But that crack is definitely #4 camelot size, but there's other good pro in other cracks. Also, there's an alternate 5.8-9ish start if you don't feel like going up the easy way. It's only 1-2 moves and protects with a 00 C3. Great option to get some extra difficulty in if you're leading it for a newbie, because they can unclip that first piece of pro and then go around the easy way.
