Starts as a hand/fist sized crack that can be jammed and gets progressively larger as it goes up (i.e. you can practically get inside the thing). After getting to a nice ledge walk up left to bolted anchor, but you may want to add a directional for your second first. If you like offwidths you might enjoy this, otherwise you might hate it.


In Precipice Right (i.e. up the Granite Stairs). To the right of a large roof (see Bartelby), locate a fist sized crack.


Probably want some large gear, the guidebook says #3, I used up to a #4. 2 bolt anchor at top shared with Bartelby and Sweet Surrender.

I placed 2 C4 #3's, 1 #1, 1 #2, a small nut, and walked a #4 a few feet. Not bad if you have some offwidth technique. Harder if you don't use the crack. Could use some serious gardening at the base.
