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.

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

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

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

Make sure to bring passive gear, lots of the crack is tapered or flaring up and down. Sep 6, 2016
Hi all, any updates to share on the thieving hornets in the month of November? They still around? Nov 23, 2017

Matthew,

My partner set up the TR on this guy and didn't complain or notice anything, so i'm assuming they're gone now. Best to check before you get involved, though. Nov 25, 2017
