Description

Climb the first part of Ritz Cracker but move left at the first ledge and follow a wide hands crack to a ledge(optional belay). From the ledge head up and left following the wide crack to the point where it meets and overhang. Pull the easy but fun move through the overhangs to the top. Do it in 1 pitch, you'll be glad you did. Really fun. better than Ritz Cracker in my opinion.

Location

Find the obvious crack start of Ritz Cracker.

Protection

Bring hands to wide hands size gear for the initial crack portion. A #4 Camalot may be helpful for the wide crack as you approach the overhang. Thin hand to finger size gear is useful on the upper overhanging portion.

Two bolt anchor at the top.

A #5 protects the wide crack before the overhang much better, I found it difficult to find a placement for the #4. Sep 26, 2017
