Description 

A fun new addition to the crag! Climb the slabby handcrack about 30' to the right of Klahanie for about 60ft before heading up the left arch/seam to new chains up and right of Klahanie.

The seam looks MUCH harder from the ground then it actually is!

Even after a 2 week dry spell in August the hand crack was wet inside, but it is easy (5.7?) so no big deal.

Our 60m made the lower off no problem, but its a LONG 60m. Tie knots in the end.


Location 

Immediately right of Klahanie, ending at an anchor up and right of Klahanie's anchor.


Protection 

Fingers to tight hand size cams. I placed two pieces between the bolts up top, but they aren't totally neccessary.

I thought the same thing: it's a rare climb that easier than it looks from below. Good fun.

this goes with 1 blue tcu and 1 orange tcu in lieu of the bolts on the arching crack.

Guidebook calls this 10a, but I thought it was 9 or 9+. Agree with Micahisaac, not sure why the top is bolted.
