Short route and short crux with a bad size.

A thin hair harder than Middle Crack. (11d/12a)

Funky face moves with thin pro to a flare and splitter fingers which starts out perfect but gets loose quickly...Keep your muscles tight! (12a/b)


Blue - Yellow Aliens are nice at the start, (2-3) Purple - Green Camalots

At the crux of this climb there is a terrifying set of 1/4" deep track marks in the crack where a cam pulled out.

Why this gets low stars is beyond me . . . the finish is a combination of bouldering, rattles, and pure power. One of the better finger cracks in the area!
