Description 

A short jamcrack packs some punch on this short but fun Sand Rock trad line.

Pull through a slight overhang on the nice chickenheads that are so common in this section of the Holiday Block, then move up to a shallow ledge below a short blank face. Puzzle your way up the face to a nice incut horizontal, then hand traverse left until you can pull up onto a prominent "plank" feature near the left end of the traverse. After getting a nice rest on the plank, move right to gain a slanting finger crack that widens to a hand/fist crack above (crux). Jam your way up this crack, then cruise to the top on easier ground.


Location 

Starts about 10' left of the sport route Cruise This. Rap from the top.


Protection 

Well-protected. Rack up with a good range of pro up to #3 Camalot or equivalent. Bolted anchors at the top.
