Dan cranking up through the crux. The name of the...

A clean crack that requires either fat fingers or small hands. This route is immediately left of the dihedral on the right end of the cliff. A splitter crack up the cliff with the crux (for me at least) coming in the first 10 feet where the crack is off hands, but too big for fingers.

Watch out on the exit to the cliff top as there is no pro and the rock is sandy and a little loose. TR and belay from the big tree to the right.

The route is enjoyable and definitely worth doing.


The crack varies from fat fingers to hands so bring pro accordingly. 50m rope and slings for the tree anchor (up and right of the top of the route).

A good rack for me was 0.5 - 2.5 friends with maybe a couple extra 2-2.5. Some stoppers could be placed also.
