Description

This is a great crack to hone your hand jamming skills.... As with many upper cliff cracks, if it was longer it would be classic....

Start awkwardly to get around the tree...Actually you will have to use the tree at the start if you want it to be close to 5.6.... After that, hand jam past 2 small roofs (hence the name Double Chin) and up more jamming and some killer face holds to the top of the cliff....

Belay from the top on gear or from trees far back from the edge....

Location

To the right of Diagonal (5.7+), there is a tree. This route starts right behind the tree and heads up right.... Actually, the tree grows right out of the bottom of the crack....

Protection

Standard rack to #3 Camalot.... Takes gear very well....

normally #2 cams are considered "hand sized" but as we know hands come in many sizes... for me this is perfect hands leading to a fist or 2 at the top... and as you say perfect feet :) an extra 20 feet of this climb would be great but i think another 500 ft would really get me going! Apr 6, 2014
