The crux comes early on with thin jams above good protection and requires some creative body positioning, while higher the crack opens up to provide more secure jams.
The good rock, lack of crowds and fun moves make this a seldom done but worthy obscurity to seek out. Two stars out of five.
This is the right-slanting finger/hand crack on the right side of Dutzi Rock, about 20' left of a prominent hand crack - Shakin' the Shirts.
pro to 2.5", with extra thin gear

I dimly recall that just after the crux it got progressively easier, but had no gear for a bit. If recommending it to a friend I might call it PG ( perhaps PG-?).

Good climb! Classic JT thin and hard of the ground with good pro. Top gear I found a bomber blue tcu and green .75 Lots of Ants! at the base.

I could place a good pro off the ground but it wouldn't keep me from decking before I could place my second gear. Good thing I didn't fall there. I'm only 5.5 with -1 index though, so maybe I need to borrow a tall friend to place my first piece higher.
