Description

If you like finger cracks, you're gonna love your Uncle Bob.

Standing on the trail you can easily spot the crux. Work your way up the finger and hand crack using great jams, crimps, underclings, jugs and stems until you arrive at the business.

It's short and sweet and will test your thin crack skills but the gear is good. Chains at the top.

Location

Just left of offwidth (steel grill 5.9) and right of Stems and Seeds.

Protection

up to 2" with extra finger size.

One of my favorite routes at Vantage. Lower 3/4 of route is mid 5.10, the last 1/4 is the business.
I gave this a anchor in 2016 so one does not have to use the Steel Grill anchor. May 15, 2014

Best route i've climbed in vantage! Bombproof gear everywhere you want it and not the usual polished feet you get on the easier stuff. Jan 21, 2018

I thought this climbed more like a face with thin gear for the lower 2/3. Definitely not a "hand/fist crack". Great route, I didn't place anything larger than a red Camalot, and second the suggestion for extra finger size gear. Nov 1, 2018
