Description Suggest change

Named for the "Slow, Children at Play" traffic signs that are typically found near a "City Park".

This splitter finger crack has its hardest moves at the very start and the very end, though is pretty continuous throughout. It follows a shallow corner that switches sides a few times.

Start by traversing or directly mounting a flake in the left-facing corner. You can place a good piece here(.4 camalot), then make a strenuous move to get to good finger locks in a right facing corner. A short stemming section is encountered before the final splitter crack in a left facing corner.

There are two finishing pitches to choose from. the left one, Tommy's Sandbox, is around 5.11-, and the right one may be 5.10.

Location Suggest change

The most popular way to get to this pitch is by taking godzilla, then Pitch 2 of city park. This dumps you right at the base.

Protection Suggest change

LOTS of small cams!!! Nuts don't work in this crack very well.

I think I may have used 4 yellow aliens.
