Well-protected, pumpy crack climbing through a steep bulge characterize this airy journey.

Climb the first 6 feet of the traversing 2nd pitch of "Pete's Farewell", then climb the short face to reach the bottom of the initial crack.

Take this until it's end, make a balancy move left a couple feet to reach the bottom of the right-facing corner. Hard moves over this to a welcomed rail. Mantel onto the rail, place some gear and blast through the final bulge, with smeary feet and thin finger locks.

Finish the route by traversing right a couple feet into the final, blocky steeps of "The Disputed". Shared chain anchors.


6-feet into the traversing 2nd pitch of "Pete's Farewell".


A rack of small to medium nuts, plus finger size cams up to A single #2.

Beautiful, well protected finger crack with great position, on great rock!!! I think one of the better finger cracks in the park.
