Description

Start this route with a reachy move to sustained finger jams. Next, shove your hands in the shallow/ackward hand crack and make progress towards the easier terrain above. Bolted anchor.

Location

Walk 5 minutes from the parking pullout on the right side of the road until you walk to a Y in the trail at the base of Practice Rock. Take the left Y in the trail and walk up hill for 100M until you find the chalked up finger crack. You be jammin' next!

Protection

First Ascent: the one and only Pat Callis. In the late 60's I believe. Feb 19, 2009

Climbed this with Pat a couple of times at the tour de hyalite and other times. He thinks that going straight up the middle is the way to go and after watching him do it I have to agree. Mar 22, 2011

There is a pretty nice jug around the arete after the first set of hand jams. Its very chalked and makes one of the sequences a little easier, but it feels like this thing may not be part of the intended route. Thoughts? Aug 29, 2018
