Thankfully hidden from the hordes of wayward teens and blaring sun, this 1-1/2" crack lies in an L-shaped slot canyon on the far Western end of the Horse Coral Face. The fairly consistent hand crack has a solid inner lip edge to make the slight overhang interesting. Emerging into the sun from the dark canyon by pulling over a roof on ergonomic jugs is quite a treat. If the going gets tough a handy wall lies but a few feet behind to stem into a 5.6 variation.
