This is one of the only true splitter-ish climbs at Hartmans. Walk around the South end of Super Slab to an obvious crack that expands from tips to wide off-width. A short but intense jam-fest that will test your pain tolerance. Tape is recommended.
South side of Super Slab, climb the obvious crack.
It is a short climb so the gear is minimal. Starts with a #2 TCU or C3 then takes #0.75-#4 Camalots. Maybe bring a #5 if it makes you feel good. You can sling (20ft of webbing or cord) the top of the left part of the detached pillar that makes the crack and lower to clean the route. Then have someone who is less tired scramble up the backside to recover the webbing/cord.
