The steep hand cracks of The Veil Wall
A steep overhanging corner near the top of the mountain. This small area hosts some short but great climbs. Although hard to find, you will know it when you see the very overhanging hand cracks. Situated between the wafer and skyline on the spare rib decent trail, it is a heck of a hike, but well worth it for the pristine bouldery hand cracks. If you are slinging the tree at the top make a very long anchor to reduce rope drag.
Same approach as Spare Rib and The Wafer then continue farther south and uphill. It is effectively on the "back" of the buttress, the corner faces the south east. If you follow the trail past songline and down it will be just next to the trail and very obvious. It is just off of the spare rib decent trail.

The prominent and beautiful steeply overhanging hand crack(s). Start on the rightmost hand crack and let the games begin. Work primarily up this crack but don't be afraid to reach out to the crack immediately out left. About halfway up the steep section you get some good holds outside the crack but good jamming skills are still critical. Finish out right and climb some easy rock to the very top. Overall a beautiful and crazy fun short but stout overhanging hand crack....[more] Browse More Classics in MT
