Description 

Classic straight-in fingers to ring-locks splitter, with the occasional thin hand jam. The crux is the first bit, with painful finger stacks and bad feet. Those hard, painful locks eventually give way to good thin-hand jams in pods that lead to a small bulge and the anchor.


Location 

Drive a little over a 1/2 mile up Grand Wash and park on the south side of the road. This is the splitter crack just right of the "Z" crack when looking north from the road. Anchors are visible from the road.


Protection 

1 .4 camalot, 4 .5 camalots, 5 .75 camalots. you could place a #1 camalot at the bulge. Big chain connecting bolts and a drilled angle.

Fantastic splitter, crux down low. Anchor has gotta be 30 years old now, might be smart to beef it up or replace it altoghter.
