BETA PHOTO: Hand Crack

Access Questionable MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Nice climb that starts under a roof and leads to a hand crack. Half way up the crack ends and your left with a few pockets and then jugs at the top. Crux is 3/4 of the way up at the pockets. Although some would say the start is the hardest part. Height dependent I guess.

Location 

Lost city, Johns wall area. First climb on the south facing wall. Look for roof about head high on left side of wall.

Protection 

Bolted and anchors at the top.

First bolt is a bit high, but fun and easy little crack climb to get up to it. Crux for me was right under the second bolt, but may have been easier if i was a little taller.
