Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>


A short, burly crack with 3 distinct sections. Begin in an overhanging A-frame and execute a funky boulder problem on flared hands and a knee bar to gain a jug in the crack. Next hand traverse out a welded seam, following 2 bolts. This is the technical crux, and is crimpy with sequential feet. The third part of the route is a very flared hand crack with crappy thin hand jambs and slippery feet.


right side of GSF, faces southeast.


Takes small cams (C3s or Zero friends), up to red camalot/#2 friend in a pod. 2 bolts for the welded seam traverse, 2 bolt anchor with rings at the top
