This crack is possibly larger than hands/fist, more like an offwidth (see below). Please supply any more information you might have.

Per ??: I remember George and Ann telling me that this thing was pretty wide - more like offwidth than fist at the crux. I think they may have carried a couple of tubes on the FA.

Per George Bracksieck: To the right of the pictured wide crack, just right of the edge of this pic, is an overhanging splitter that diagonals up and right, continuing around the rounded buttress to the rim. On Sept 12. 1981, Steve Sarns led the overhanging splitter, using clean aid. I followed mostly free. Our splitter began fistish and narrowed before turning the corner, but no where on our climb was any wide gear necessary. I don't know which crack George and Anne climbed. If they used tubes, I suspect they did the crack in this photo and not the one Steve and I did.


This is on the SW side of the spire.

Please supply any further information if you know.


Rumor has it (see below) that large gear and/or Big Bros would be very helpful.

Please supply any further info if you know.

Possibly a couple of tubes on the FA.
