This is a painful and exciting continuous finger to hand crack up a slightly overhanging right facing dihedral. Once you take off on the climb it stays on you most of the way, but does offer a least one good rest above the crux section midway up. Tape recommended.


This is the obvious crack system to the left of The Leaning Tower, just right of Second Thought


Stoppers, a double set of Aliens and Camalots up to a #4.
