The obvious curved hand crack on Mary Ann's face. Rap from slings above Hit it Ethel.

What a fun climb. A couple of notes:

There is a bolted anchor with rings at the top (thank you). If you want to build an anchor at the top to TR something else, you probably want to use a 70 meter rope. A sixty just barely gets you down on rappel from the rap rings. Depending on your comfort/ability, bring extra BD sizes 2, 3 and 4's. 3 days ago

Super fun route! Great for beginner crack climbing. Feb 6, 2014
Agree with all the sentiments above. Over 100' of splitter hand and fist jamming. 5.4 can be this good! Jan 7, 2013
