A hand crack with a short face climbing start and an offwidth exit in a shady location.


To the left of Jughead and just right of the wide, short D.E. chimney.


Standard rack up to 3 or 4 inches

Classy little crack line! Closer to 50' than the 80' listed here. No dreaded OW, maybe only a 5' long section of cups-to-fist with big faceholds alongside. Mostly just steep hands on good rock with a short fingery crux at the bottom.

Fun! A low angled featured face leads to a shelf off of which is a bouldery crux followed by solid hands. The crack tapers toward the back so you can pick your jam size.

To get off we climbed the short feature in the corner up and to the climbers right then walked south west under the wave feature then curved back around right to the base of the climb.
