Description 

Two laser cut cracks in a gently overhanging prow of rock. One is finger size, the other is a hand crack. Which one you gonna choose?

What you hoped "Via Apia" would be.

Not to be confused with "Double Jeopardy" near the Great Chimney.

Location 

Just right of the first alcove, as you walk into Vulture's Overlook from the boulder field.

Protection 

Medium nuts and hand-sized cams.

Regular bottom, very interesting top. Thune laid back the left crack, I used some awkward jamming skills in both cracks. It worked both ways and both at DL 5.9.
