Excellent splitter hand and fist crack in a shallow dihedral. Crux is at the start, route is sustained at the grade


Continue hiking past WMA crack. Def Jam is around the next buttress, uphill behind a boulder (a small trail splits off from the main trail right up to it). If you encounter the sign for Crackhouse Alley, you've gone too far. There's a 5.12 bolted arete (Door Prize) just to the right and twin finger cracks (The Mud, the Blood, and the Beer .11b)to the left.


Mostly #2 camalots, a few #3s and a #1 should suffice. 2 bolt anchor at top on left side wall of dihedral. Pull rope left to avoid getting it caught in the crack.
