Description

Excellent, sustained vertical hand crack in a dihedral right of the Squat Rock summit. Approach as for Lichen or not, and then go up and right to the first alcove past the buttress directly below the summit block. Reminiscent of the first pitch of Friday the 13th (Vedauwoo), although slightly steeper and not as clean as the latter climb.

10 feet of easy ground leads to sustained hand jams and a short thin hands/lieback (crux) to a small ledge. Lieback or stem your way through the pod above ( many good small gear placements) to a large sandy ledge where a good gear anchor can be set up. Easy walkoff straight back and then right.

Protection

Standard rack plus a couple of medium hexes.
