This crack does not suck


Locate the obvious fingercrack that splits the face. Starts with slightly rattly finger jams (depends on hand size). Then goes to perfect finger locks until the anchor. Footholds seem to appear on the face whenever you start feeling the pump. Excellent climb!!


Route is located left of where the approach trail hits the wall. Hard to miss it if you walk by.


Lot's of finger size cams useful. The crack widens in a couple spots allowing for a #1 camalot to be placed. Two bolt anchor at top of climb.
