Description

A classic, narrowing crack that goes from wide at the bottom to an inch or so near the top, but lingers mostly in the hands range. A must-do if you're into pure crack climbing.

Location

The left-most of three strikingly obvious splitters in an orange wall facing you as you come past the Airborne alcove.

Protection

It is possible to bring only 4,3,2,1,.75,and.5 Camalot, but you might want a bit more the first time around.

Double on #1's worked well for me. Def. save one for the higher crux.

Even managed to toss my #11 hex in down low. Super route but watch for anchor bargers on "Golden Gloves"... Feb 27, 2007

Good call on saving the #1 camalot for the upper crux. Really wished I'd had one. Feb 24, 2008

the softest 10a here May 27, 2010
Considering the crux is a "tight hands crux" I don't think it's safe to layout such a generic "softest 10a" claim. Too handsize dependent. Jul 30, 2010

the crux up above. Bring extra .75 if you're not solid on tight hand/ring lock

Great climb nonetheless. One of my favorite at T wall Feb 8, 2016
