upper hand crack


The beautiful left-facing corner just left of SHORT BUT SWEET. Climb the slab to a flexy piton, pull over the roof cruxfully, then follow finger a crack with some tricky gear to a crux gaining a beautifully splitter hand crack higher up.


Main Cliff just left of SHORT BUT SWEET


Piton, normal rack to 3 inches. a screamer for piton

Matt did you climb this? Ive been to the base but it was super dirty. I do believe a cleaning is in order.

This is a great pitch that a quick scrub would do it some good.
One of the first new routes I ever did and what a fun day with both Rich and Mark.
Sadly, Rich passed away last year way before his time.

This really is a worthy pitch. I led it around '97 and it was dirty but doable. Great crack climbing with tricky gear, as I remember.

It's a nice complement to Lumberjack Crack.

i actually did climb it i forgot because i aided it.... um yes some tricky gear for sure especially at the second crux pulling into the hand crack. first piton should be a shiny new bolt!
