Description 

If you're getting bored with all of the immaculate 5.11 finger cracks on the Tower, give this little anomaly a try. Although its diminutive stature seems inviting from the base, it provides full value! It's definitely not the locker finger crack it looks like, but rather is flared and shallow. Dial in your footwork and get creative, cause this thing will have you cranking all sorts of strange sequences on insecure flared jams and lots of techy feet. Stays on you to the anchors.


Location 

The first crack right of Mr. Clean. Anchors can be seen a short ways up to the right of the crack.


Protection 

Finger size stuff up through .75 camalots or maybe #1 camalot. This doesn't protect quite as readily as most Tower cracks.
