Climb the prominent crack in the middle of the face.

This is probably one of the nicest finger cracks in the state. Short, with a nice crux section. Definitely well protected, I have done this one with just a set of stoppers.


Protects well with a set of stoppers. Short and sweet.

Nice lead, very well protected. A pink tri cam protects the start. Just a set of nuts does the rest. I did use a metolius blue tcu in there somewhere as well.
