  • Description 

    This excellent pitch is probably 5.12 if jammed, but as a lieback, the case could be made that no move is harder than 5.10+. The climb is located 30 feet right of Warmup Hand Crack and 30 feet left of Pat's Crack.

    Climb the obvious fist crack formed by a left-facing flake.


    1 ea. 0.75 to #3 Camalots for the start. 4 ea. 3.5 Camalots (#4 C4's) and 2 ea. 4 Camalots for the meat of the climb. An extra #1 Camalot for the finish.

    i tried to jam it straight on but had to flip it into a layback/uncercling for a couple sections. quite strenuous, but luckily the feet have better friction than immediately apparent. harder than it looks from the ground. anchor could probably use an update.
