Description

Another fun crack climb, and a good warmup. Mostly a great handcrack with a thin hands section at the top.

Location

The obvious handcrack on the Ivory Tower, between Lord Caffeine and Tideline.

This was my first 10a and is a great route to break into the grade. Short, splitter, and takes gear everywhere. The slightly wider middle section scared me, but those big-handed folks may find the crux up high. May 14, 2012

Great warm up for the other climbs at the crag. Solid hand jams with ample features to smear with your right foot. The crux comes up high when the crack thins to tight hands. Very short. Sep 7, 2009
