A route the quality of which is the equal of any in the park. Extolled as a thin hands crack in guide books, I found this overhanging beauty more of a finger crack. Protection is abundant, but you have to hold on to place it. If you can make it through the crux to the pod just below the rim, you can eke out a rest. The finishing moves may not be the hardest on the route, but they are technical enough to wish you had the strength and endurance of a demigod.

I think Hercules is a more consistent crack route than Wanger Banger, its "grade mate" and perhaps pumpier.


A #3 Camalot or similar can be used in the lower easy section. Above that #1 Camalots and smaller can be used. If you can hang out and place nuts like the legends of yore, more power to you.
