DescriptionThe classic hard finger crack at Murrin.
Ascend a steep 10a crack on the face above some blocks and past an intermediate anchor. Traverse to a stance below a right leaning splitter finger crack on the headwall. A short, but thin and technical crux(12a) lies above. Fight on to the chains. Watch for the rope getting stuck in the crack to the left of the mid-height ledge.
Do "Sentry Box Direct" for, in my opinion, a better, more sustained version, but beware of the difficult gear placements. There is serious ground fall potential in the first 5m of this variation.
