Unknown 5.8 (splitter hand crack)
BETA PHOTO: It is the crack to the right of the larger chimney...
Unique climb for NC;good hand jams up an obvious crack. Climb a short corner to a ledge, then take the splitter crack to the top of the partially detached pillar
Take the Cereal Wall approach but walk left once you hit the wall. Take a faint trail around some boulders and up hill about 50 feet. You will see a series of cracks, some very wide. This route is the right-most crack
2-4"; double 3's are good
Rappel slings at the top- bring a cordelet to set a TR

Surprised this gets so few stars. It's short, but packs action the whole way with a great rest after some cupped-hands to fist action. Protects well with a couple of large (#3-4) cams.

I really liked this climb, It has one or two offwidth sections in it and the start was a little difficult for me. Short but fun.

Great crack climb would be four stars if it was taller
