Stick your fingers in this crack.

Description 

When you look at this striking, thin finger crack that leads up a clean short wall to a very cool hueco-like dish at the top, the question is do you grab a rack or boulder it? As a trad line it is probably a bit short, but as a semi-highball it shines. The landing is flat, the balancy crux comes at mid-height, and the various finger locks are all bomber.

Location 

From The Good Book, follow the footpath right and up to the upper tier of the cliff band. Continue along the base of the cliffs for about a minute, and this climb will appear on a small band just before you reach a deep corner, aka Cornered.

Protection 

Finger sized gear or a pad and a spotter

I felt like it was much easier to boulder, gear just took up the good locks.Very secure up high and for the top-out

Great route, I never thought about it as a highball, have to try it. I think the area is called smalls wall or something. Or at least that is how it is listed in the guide book. Definitly .7+
