A beautiful thin crack up a less than vertical face. Solid feet are hard to come by in places. Eases up near the top. The start could vary in difficulty if you try doing it static vs dynamic.


Head downhill down a trail 50' before the trail that leads to the Seminar Wall. A ways down on a very large boulder.


Rappel anchor. Solo up a 5.7 low angle slab around the climbers' right side of the climb to set it up. Good warm up for the business.

Definitely a classic and one of my favorites at Woodson. The moves off the ground are the crux. Being short, or simply doing the start statically makes it more difficult. Contrarily, having small fingers likely makes this one easier. Dec 7, 2009

After being stumped by the “hop or dynamic beta,” I tried some very static beta and this thing went smoothly. One of the finest climbs I have done at Woodson! Feb 1, 2010

The static start checks in at 11+. Jun 14, 2011
Like any other climb with a crux first move, jumping or using a cheat stone or standing on a crash pad, lessens the difficulty quite a bit.
It's real obvious when you're standing there looking at it, what the deal is.
This is one of the most beautiful cracks I've ever seen. It's also painful and requires commitment. A top quality Woodson prize, for sure.

Don't even bother trying the static start when it's hot. The foot smears at the bottom are tough. Jul 2, 2018
Fantastic, one of the best at Woodson IMHO, and it starts from the ground without jumping then quickly gets easier. Shame it's not a bit longer. Despite the tricky start, it is significantly easier than some of the better known finger cracks with similar grades... Jul 24, 2018
