Description Suggest change

This route is on the far right end of Reservoir Wall. It is way down past Left, Right, and Middle Cracks until you are around the corner and facing Scarface Wall.

Continue walking the cliff line past a large dirty depression/scoop of loose tiny rock chips (much like a talus cone) and back up onto boulders again. Perhaps 100 meters or so later, you will reach a fabulous looking, left-facing corner with an outward facing crack in it. It is just as good as it looks.

David Bloom writes in his book that this climb would be as popular as Incredible Hand Crack if it was not such a long approach, and having done it, I agree. It is just as good and not crowded, nor "used up."

Lower or rap with a 60M rope, but BE CAREFUL! The climb appears to be just about 100'
