Description

This is a hands to fingers crack that starts out vertical then goes almost horizontal before going to easy vertical terrain again. The crux is a short thin hands and fingers sequence right before the angle eases off. A good crack that doesn't require a lot of endurance.

Location

Walk in to Foreign Territory and locate the large alcove up and on the right where a huge boulder fell out of the wall. This crack is the dihedral to splitter on the arching overhang on the right side of the alcove.

Protection

Orange to yellow aliens. Bolts up top.

I added a quicklink and a piece of old rope up at the anchors on this. It is much easier to clean if you simply lower off, but, as it was, the rope drag was terrible. I extended the master point down to a free hang, but keep two things in mind: 1) the blue rope was added 8/30/16 and should probably be changed next season, and 2) the old non-locking carabiner I lowered off of was kind of sketchy. I taped the gate closed to make it safer when I lowered. Aug 30, 2016
