I've been looking at this lonely crack for years and just hadn't gotten around to it. It's on the trail pretty much between Triple Corners and Hinterlands.
Its short but sweet, Just don't blow the last move cause it could get sour really quick.
Climb up in to the perfect finger crack which turns to stacks and then heads left with funky jams and slick feet. Eventually you hit good hand jams and a stance to catch your breath. Place good gear as high as you can and exit the crack to the face above. Don't fall as you get out from that last piece. The Mantel at the top hosts perfect jugs so if you hit those you are in the clear.
After the rope gully on the way up to hinterlands watch off the right hand side of the trail for the pretty, sharp crack the takes an unfortunate turn to the left.
Regular small rack from fingers to hands. Belay from trees and walk off in a gully to the left.
