BETA PHOTO: The left of the two cracks.

Description 

The left of two obvious, diverging cracks. Climb the mostly fingers crack to a good rest, then finish with a few bolt-protected fun moves.


Protection 

Gear to 1". A tree set back 10 or 15 feet from the top makes a good anchor. Be sure to bring slings and webbing to extend it if you plan on toproping.

Beautiful crack, one of the few pure splitter cracks at barber wall. Crack jamming and locking to a layback pumpy section to a great stance then a bolt protected move to a good dish. Awesome route!

The "dish" mentioned in the previous comment is one of the all-time best holds ever---sure to put a huge smile on your face. You could probably cut both feet loose from it (if you had enough gas left in the tank).
