Beautiful line

Description 

One of the few truly splitter cracks in the area. A must do! Start by pulling an overhang using a hand crack. Follow the splitter line to the top. As you near the top, there are a few face holds that you can stem your feet on, but not many.

Location 

You can see this crack from the bridge as you drive from the New to the Summersville parking area. Descend to the Pirate's Cove and pass Mutiny, and follow the cliff band as you head toward the Coliseum. It will be the first really splitter crack that you'll see under a roof. You can only access this climb during low water.

Protection 

Hand size pieces to start and decreasing sizes as you continue. Finishes with tight fingers sized stuff. One shut and a new bolt anchor with a rap ring.
