Description

This is the obvious handcrack on the north face of Pebble Beach. It indeed has perfect hand jams for the first 25 ft, except for one short wide section, and then you thankfully get a rest in an alcove. Exiting the alcove out the right side is exciting. Unfortunately, the line deteriorates after this (thus only one star versus two) with possible exits right or left up dirty rock. You need to traverse(easy) to The Dan and Randy Show (Sedimental Journey in Rossiter) to get back to the ground.

Tape would be advised as my hands are still healing. Worth doing especially as it is atypical of what the Sacred cliffs have to offer (pebble pinching!).

Protection

SR with extra cams in hand sizes. Need to traverse top to get to fixed anchors for descent.
