This is an immaculate, sharp, pure, splitter, finger crack. It's as good of a splitter as the Bishop finger crack and a better splitter than Sphinx. It's short, approx the same height as Soft Parade in Vedauwoo, about the same rating, too. It is actually longer than 40 feet (60 maybe), but the top 20 is utterly loose and easy choss, not worth climbing. When I can, I'm going to put an anchor there. Until then, you can down-aid the route.


This is down and north from the furthest left side of the Sunshine Dome. It looks too small to jam at first glance, walk closer and it opens up. Hard to miss.


1 blue TCU, 1 green Alien, 2 yellow Aliens, 2 red Aliens, one orange, and one purple. Use your own judgment.
