Description

Sustained Hands in a slick corner.
Classic for hand crack/corner lovers.

Start on easy ground, and the climb keps getting harder and harder as you move up closer to the tree, once you get tot he tree is eases up a bit.

Location

Obvious corner left of Stretch Armstrong.

Protection

Gear of mostly finger to large hand sizes. Bolted anchor.

As of 10/16/17, the hornets at the top are still a problem despite the cool temps. My boyfriend got stung multiple times by these aggressive little shits. Thankfully, with the anchors being easily accessible from the top, gear retrieval was a non-issue. Oct 16, 2017

Some kind of hornets nest on the route near the top as of 9/24/17. Apparently several people got swarmed and stung pretty badly. Climb with caution. Sep 26, 2017

Make sure to bring passive gear, lots of the crack is tapered or flaring up and down. Sep 6, 2016

Yep, the crack is dirty on top - exactly how I like my cracks. Mar 31, 2016

Probably spot on at 5.9, but felt harder due to the sustained nature of the middle ~30 ft. Absolutely eats pro anywhere you want. Nice, aesthetic line. May 7, 2015
The crack was somewhat muddy at the top, at least when I climbed it (November 2014). I am not sure it's worth a repeat. Jan 26, 2015
