An overhanging crack with insecure hand jams to finger locks. The moves are both powerful and somewhat painful.


The obvious overhanging crack in the middle of the tower. Located 15 feet right of Unas Slayer of the Gods, a 5.11a sport route.


Top Rope. a lead would require finger to small hand sized cams.

A natural anchor can easily be built at the top, hand sized pieces. Access to the top via an easy scramble from the right side of the formation.
