Description

Just around the corner to the right of Steppenwolf, you can see this steep, splitter hand crack on the left wall of a dihedral. Moderate jamming (you can stem off to the right to make it even easier) leads up to the steep crux section. The crack here is a bit flared in places, but you can place good gear for protection.

Location

This is on the wall just left of Moderate Cracks.

Protection

Standard rack, with some finger and hands-wide hands size gear.

This is a great line to climb if you want to mix things up from the many lower angle, straight in, crack climbs found at the Perch. A good hands to wide hands crack (with right foot stemmed to the boulder) leads to some fun crimping and steep jamming above. A small BD nut gives you protection at your chest for the crux, and bomber cams go in a couple of feet above. Swing left to Steppenwolf at the top of the pillar, and run it to the anchor on a hero hand crack!

I believe this climb is referred to as "Alligator Skin" is the new Haas SP guidebook. Fitting. Mar 15, 2015

This line will be in the shade when the rest of the area is getting fired up.

The crux protects well with an RP on the face. Sep 26, 2011
