Description 

This splitter crack is as good as they get. It is 30 feet left of Crescent Corner, which is excellent, and goes through a roof on fingers, then rattly fingers, thin hands, some jugs, and hands through an overhang. If you get a hot day, this little wall is worthy for this and the two routes to the right of it.

Awesome route! I can't believe this line wasn't climbed years ago!

terrific route. from the ground, it looks like you will have to climb through some heinous loose blocks. these blocks are actually solid and the climbing through this section is really fun. the only thing this route lacks is an extra 50 feet. nice work sam!
