Description Suggest change

A mostly hands- to thin-hands corner crack, with a short section of fingertip-width. The jamming is fun, a bit of liebacking is helpful, and there are face features here and there to make plugging the gear a bit easier.

Near the top, one side of the crack is pretty rough, making cam placement a bit tricky, and if you're one of those no-tape masochists...good luck.

Location Suggest change

This left-facing, corner crack is located in the same alcove as Deface Crack and Wide Boy. It shares anchors with Deface Crack; the anchor isn't visible from the ground directly beneath the crack because it is set back a bit, over a ledge at the top of the crack.

Looking down, 500 W street in Saint George is just slightly west. The belay area is large, flat, and well-used so it should be hard to miss.

Protection Suggest change

Mostly hand-sized. I used several #2.5 Friends with one or two #3 Friends. I also used a #2 Camalot C3.

The anchor is above a ledge and consists of 3 bolts and hangers with (smallish) chain from two hangers joined with a single quicklink, and webbing from the 3rd hanger joined to the chains' quicklink with another quicklink.
