The David Bloom guide describes this as big hands, but it's probably more accurate to describe it as fists in a corner, with a wide crack to the right that allows for good stemming, keeping the grade at 5.9.
Left of Big Guy. Wide corner with a wide crack to the left. Starts on a block.
Blue Camalots through #4 Camalot.

I would suggest bringing gear from .4 C4 (fingers) to #5, with emphasis on the #4 Camalot size.

Fun route. 80% of the route is protected by #4 camalot. I fisted the majority of it. Look for the good stemming rests. .75 camalot protects move to chains.

Great warmup for Big Guy or for getting non-committed practice on tea-cup jams.

Despite all of the sand that lied within the cracks, this thing was awesome. Kind of a slick start on fingers up to a ledge where you gain a perfect fists crack that slowly expands. The stemming rests make this very enjoyable for new crack climbers. A must do.
