Description 

A finger crack that bites back! One that must truly be earned and is an onsight to be proud of, one of the most pure finger cracks in the Adirondacks.

Climb up and right onto a small ledge then back left to an alcove (same as for on the loose), traverse 10 feet left on the sloping ledge then embark upwards on a thin finger crack capped with a roof. Break left up the overhang to the left leaning crack to a ledge then back right to the fixed anchor shared with On the Loose.


Location 

same as On the Loose


Protection 

up to 1 inch, extra finger sized cams and wires.

This thing felt ridiculously hard on TR - 12a+++

The upper section has no biter locks anywhere - rattly finger and smooth rounded edges make this thing a cryptic jungle. Want to try it again on TR soon...

You'll need a #1 or #2 (probably better) camalot as a directional in order to protect your second for the topout as the anchor is off to the right approximately 6-8 feet.
