A great introduction to desert crack climbing. Start down and left of the crack near a pine tree. Ascend the obvious splitter crack in the wingate slab. The crux is getting past a thin-hands section to the good hand jams and another little cruxy section just before the anchor (bring something like a green or a yellow alien). Originally called 10a, this will feel easier than anything in Indian Creek.


Drive south on the scenic drive past the visitor center and campground. After 8 miles the road will turn to dirt. Drive another 1/2 mile and you will see the obvious splitter hand crack on the right about 200 feet from the road on the left (south) side. There is a pine tree at the base, just left of the crack.


some finger pieces for the bottom and top,1 .5 camalot, 2-3 .75 camalots, 3-4 #1 camalots, 2-3 #2 camalots, 2 #3 camalots. rappel off bolts with chains.
