DescriptionThe obvious right-trending hand crack line up the wall. Scramble up a couple of ledges placing finger size gear before throwing yourself into the hand and off-hand crack. A wobbler block keyed into the crack about half way offers a jug hold. The crack widens as you get higher and a roof comes in from the left. Layback the roof while wishing it went on for longer and stop on the ledge. Metolius rap hanger two-bolt anchor is on the left. The anchor is hard to see from the ground but it is there.
Originally the anchor was on the right of the crack just below the roof because the final moves were pretty dirty. After it was cleaned the anchor was moved higher and left to include more fun climbing.
Because the route was climbed ground-up with no pre-cleaning it might still be a bit dirty and some stuff could pull off. Use your judgment and some caution and don't take holds for granted.
