This is the splitter 20' fingers / off fingers crack to a big ledge just south of the main Neat & Cool area and around the corner from Kangaroo (next to a few picnic tables and little park area). Super short but fun locks. A good first trad lead. Linking into a route above would be a good multipitch training ground too. Both pitches are short, bomber gear, fixed anchors and easy.
