Description

NOTE: this is #3 on the topo. Tape up or your hands will look like a bowl of mashed berries. Other than that, it's simple - jam up the beautiful handcrack. Think about 'swapping sides' at the squeezy crux. The upper half turns into an offwidth though (think about long pants, gobi knees). If you don't feel comfortable running out the last 30' to the anchors, set a belay (on gear) at the obvious shelf in an alcove. Bring up your second, then do the second short pitch to the top. This climb is the 5.8 Vedauwoo 'hands' testpiece.

Protection

Take a full rack, lite on the wires and assorted stuff, and heavy on the medium and large cams (rec. 3x#1, 3x#2, 2x#3, 2x#3 1/2 Camalots). A 60m rope is recommended. It's 2 rap stations to the ground from the top as indicated on the topo.
