This prominent overhanging thin hands / fist crack is on the east face of Split Dome. The superb rock quality makes this short but powerful climb well worthwhile.

Jam the crack and use holds on either side for hands and feet. The initial crack ends in a small "cave." At this point a thin seam goes directly over a roof (thin cams and stoppers for protection)to the top or a left-slanting fist crack can be climbed to the top. Placing protection is the crux.


1" - 3.5" Cams and medium stoppers provide excellent protection for this overhanging crack. Medium cams are necessary for an anchor in a horizontal crack behind a ledge at the top.
