Description

Hand crack through a small roof. Add the steep face at the top for extra fun.

Location

Start on the outside corner to the left of "The V." Climb to the obvious handcrack, and use it. At the top, climber's choice.

Protection

None for the first 15-20 feet. Do a few thin moves over a bad landing to start, then easier climbing to the roof where you have good gear. Or traverse in from "The V", and deal with rope drag.

Actually, this is probably most fun as a top-rope.

We did a variation of this today, "Triple Direct". Start just left of the arete (better than the right face start) and gain the ledge. Then go straight up the face without the crack on an awesome crimp ledge to a left hand throw. Then straight up to the top. 5.11b

On the regular route the crack itself provided for some interesting jamming. Aug 3, 2009
