Description

Four bolts of slab climbing (with a 5.9 crux encountered after the fourth bolt) leads to a striking hand crack. Follow bolts up this beautiful, sustained crack which gets steeper and steeper with height. Simply awesome!

The route can be climbed as one long pitch or broken down into two. With a single 50 or 60-meter rope, it will take two rappels to get back down.

Location

Walk to the high point of the talus slope that abuts Lower Elbow Room. The route starts on the right-hand side of this high point--look above for the striking hand crack that sits left of a clean left-facing dihedral (which is "Palm Reader").

Protection

12-13 bolts
