Description 

Stellar crack that is perfect hands nearly the entire way up, before narrowing to fingers. Plentiful face holds, and excellent feet. ASCA 2 bolt anchor.

I understand these amplitheater climbs are not in the current version of the guide because the park service is trying to keep climbing a little lower profile right next to the falls, their biggest attraction?


Location 

In the falls amplitheater, on the east facing wall. Obvious handcrack with 2 bolt anchor, 40' south of lightweight guides.

Dave, keep it listed as Super Hands. Ranger Crack makes it sound like it should be at the Manure Pile.
