Wrist Ranger is a crack worth walking for. The crack splits a short face intersecting a dike and another crack along the way. WR is located on the lower right (SE) face of Spelunk Spire formation (away from the spire). Climb the crack, at around 3-4 inches most of the way with a few smaller constrictions. With my non-Scarpellian sized hands this was mostly a rattly fist crack - not a handcrack as called by some literature on the subject. Great rock. When you hit the top of the crack and the arete, set some bomber pro (1.5-2 inches) for your second and run it out up the easy slab to a tree atop the formation. Scramble off to the right side of the cliff, veer a little left for the easiest decent. This is a good line, but beware to those climbers breaking into the grade I'd recommend bringing several #4 and #3 Camalots.
Gear to 4 inches.
