Holy Slit!

Description 

"OH MY GOD!"

That alone sums up this hella kick ass canyon classic.

This route involves a layback sequence that quickly becomes a religious experience as you slowly but surely work your way up hand over hand, hand jam after hand jam up a righteously wicked crack.

For those crack-addicted hand jammers, who pray the rosary, this climb is a must! For those who layback will find salvation! And woe to those who have a desire for a bold lead for they will beg for mercy after the last bolt brings them forth unto a blank face climb with a hell-fire series of crimps that will end in an elevator ride if you fail to make the anchors before thine idle hands give out.

Not a climb for the weak of mind, body or soul.

Location 

A pretty obvious crack located on a thin ledge towards the back of the gully.

Protection 

Bolts, open shut anchors and solid belief in one's ability to send.

Have some faith! Get on it!
