Description [Suggest Change]
This route is one of the best hand cracks that I have done at shelf. There are some tricky moves to get started, but then enjoy perfect hand jams for the next 40 ft. There are a pair of anchors on a ledge about 65ft up to keep the route at 5.10c. The 5.11b extension goes above the ledge with 3 bolts. These are well spaced and a fall at the wrong time would put you on the ledge. A few TCU's and small cams will make this more enjoyable. The finger crack on the 2nd half is fun, but the crux comes at the last bolt. I think you need to veer left or right at the last bulge. I could not figure out the straight up variation. Fun route with the crux at 90ft.

Draws and a few TCUs for the 2nd half of the route.
