The excellence that is granite.

Description 

A excellent long finger crack!

This climb follows the plumb line that Wafer Step (5.5) joins at the half-point of this wall.

Enjoy moderate moves until you reach a point where the crack squeezes down and won't accept fingers, then pull the crux face moves and enjoy the easier ground above.


Location 

left of wafer step in the talus at the obvious low angle finger crack.


Protection 

small cams, wires
2 bolt anchor

I'm not sure what the OP means by a "long finger crack". Like so many routes on the island, this route is both of superb quality, and tragically short. As in perhaps 30' of climbing short. A one (really, really fun) move wonder, albeit one with impeccable rock, in a gorgeous setting. Absolutely worth climbing, but don't expect anything long or sustained.

yes, very true about the "long" statement, perhaps a great top to bottom finger crack would be a better description since so many of the island's cracks are broken by ledges.

Best not fall at the crux moves, used nothing bigger than .75
