One-finger Pockets Suck 5.10a


This a great Crack of mostly hand sizes that looks like it 's not done that often. The worst part is there is thick green moss far back in parts of the crack that you can touch. This doesn't interfere with gear placements and you can work around the moss in the cracks. It's a great climb worth doing if you brought trad gear with you.


To the left of Birth Canal up a little gully. You can set up a top rope or top out to clean your anchor.


Medium trad gear and a #4 to protect the wide section. Two hangers at the top
