This stellar right-slanting finger / hand crack is on the west side of the corridor at the north end. Solid hand jams and finger locks are encountered to the top. The sharp crystals inside the crack may warrant protective tape for your hands. Great climb - 3 out of 5 stars.


Medium stoppers, small to medium TCU's, and cams to 2" will sew this crack up. Medium cams and long runners to sling a horn work well for an anchor. Rappel off of runners (with chain links) that are threaded around the base of a large boulder about 20'left of the finish .


Thin hands, fairly continuous moves. Rock is sharp, however. Dec 8, 2003
Actually, a pretty decent route and solid for the grade.

3 of 5 stars. May 21, 2006
