Scramble up easy rock going left or right around a big block to get established below the wide hands/fist crack. Jam the crack awkwardly or feel around inside for some edges and sigh some relief when you grab the big flake sticking out and it doesn't wobble. Stand up on said flake and enjoy some good hand crack climbing up the rest of the way.
Either step left near the top to use the anchors on Big Jalapena or continue on easier terrain to the top and setup your own anchor.


Route #5 in Chen/Wehner, as shown on .

This climb is also listed as Beverly #6 (5.10b/c) and Jackson #3 (5.10b/c).


Pro from .5 to 4". Doubles in the hand sizes if you want to generously protect.
