Description

This crack starts out as big hands and fists and slowly widens. Often referred to as a sandbag, this thing isn't so bad if you get arm bars dialed. According to local lore, it was named because Jay Anderson soloed it for the first ascent.

Location

This is the leftmost route on the lower tier.

Protection

A big hand or fist piece right off the ground, then a 5 and a 6 Wild Country for the rest. Gear anchor up top, walk off.

Per Zach Keeney: there are now fixed anchors on top.

If you don't have the technique dialed on this thing, it will (as jammer put it) eat your lunch. Big Pink's little brother. Turns out the entire family's mean. Oct 26, 2008

I consider this a benchmark for 10c wide, along the same line as Generator Crack. The start is probably the hardest part especially for those with small hands. Once the knee fits, the difficulty drops off. Nov 16, 2015
