Warming hands before finishing Broken Crack (photo...


Awkward and deceptively demanding hand and fist crack. (VS 5a)


This is an obvious crack breaking the left side of the sickle buttress main face, 15 feet left of Sickle Buttress (S 4a) and Sickle Buttress Direct (VS 5a). Another grosser crack of similar description sits just a meter or two farther left (Broken Crack, VS 5a).


Medium cams for breaks on the left, large cams for the crack itself.
