DescriptionThis is a combination of descriptions by Joey T & L Paik.
Jesus Christ Built My Finger Crack lies on a narrow buttress with overhanging transition to ice curtain. Start uphill from Verminator and downstream from Dream Team. It is a pleasure and a pump.
Details: shred the Krispy Gnar on this testpiece. Stick picks up & over first two bulges (good rock pro). Power up a finger/hand crack. Climb an overhang to gain a WI6 hanging curtain. Pull the lip, and ascend WI3 ice to top. This is an all trad ice climb.
It is 30m. Climb thin ice to a rock crack. There is an interesting hammer jam midway. Delicate rock and thin ice moves keep your attention. A key right hand jam in overhanging rock bit connects 2 very positive left hooks. Finish with moderate ice above. This is great fun.
