The goods.


For most folks, the crux is off the ground with the wide hands crack. The rock is rough! Once past the wide bit, it becomes easier and has some cool movements following the crack under and to the right of the roof.


This is around the corner, to the right of Finger Fusion. It is the obvious, wide hands splitter.


#3 for the start. A couple hand-sizes and fingers for the rest.

No finger gear for this one, just thin hand to maybe one fist-sized cam.
