Portions of Reservoir Wall are on private land and should not be climbed. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route is an obvious, left-facing dihedral. This route lies just left of where the main trail up to the crag meets the rock, and about 20 yards to the right of Wigglin' Worm.

Tape up your paws and climb the wide-hands crack (with a fist here or there for small handed people) to the top of this 70' crack and lower off of the fixed anchor.

Protection 

Mostly #3-#3.5 cams. #2-#3 camalots are perfect.

This route is great if you have small hands and want to work on fists or if you have big hands and want to work on off-hands. My hands are medium-sized for a girl and I get bomber fists almost the whole way - albiet the jams hurt pretty bad. And suck it up on this one and go tapeless - teaches you better technique!!

NOTE: This is often confused with Three Fools. Three Fools is the splitter but short fist crack that splits the wall at the top of the approach trail.

The photo by Monty is what I thought was three fools; the photo of dave is what the new guide calls three fools. Damn!

Tony,

The route your describing here is actually an unnamed 5.10 #12 in the new Bloom guide. Three Fools is farther right and climbs a slightly overhanging big hand and fist crack (#3-#3.5 Camalots, maybe the new #4's might fit at the widest spot?)

The photos are of two different routes.

The corner is in sight of wigglin worm and Dr Carl. It is Route #15 in the Bloom 2nd edition "Unnamed 5.10-"

The other photo labelled as three fools is further around to the right

If you don't have a big stack of #3's, there are a few places in the middle of the pitch where some #2's will work. I found the 3.5 I had to be a bit of a pain, only a few very specific places it would go.

Soft for the grade.
