DescriptionGet there: From Sylvan, got through the tunnel and park immediately on the left. Walk uphill (on the path) for maybe 200 feet until you come to a large right-facing dihedral with 2 huge ferny cracks in the inside corner (one on each side of the dihedral). Horseshoes and Hand Grenades is the finger crack 5 feet to the left of the corner.
Climb it: Rack up some small cams and nuts and climb to the bolted anchors & chains which you'll find on the ledge above the crack. This climb is consistent 5.11 all the way, with good but small finger jams and a few face holds on either side. The crux for me (on toprope) was about 1/3 the way up.
