Got tape? Climb up this short very textured hand crack that widens a bit near the top. Continue up to the climbers left to a bolt anchor.


Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

The San Diego County Climbing Guide by Dave Kennedy and Chris Hubbard suggest this a 5.7, and the pdf guide by Art Messier suggests 5.8. Shares anchor with a sport route up and left 15' from top of crack.

Maybe I was having a good day, or maybe its the abundance of good feet... but this felt way soft for a 5.8..

Climbing up Sam I Am and used the bolt anchors off of it and one BD .75 in the top of the crack to guide the rope and we TRed it.

great texture in the crack and good to learn finger and hand jams because you can mostly keep your feet out of the crack.
