Description

This route is an obvious, overhanging, hand and finger crack. It begins as either a featured slab or a seam in a small corner system.

Location

This route is located a couple minute's walk south of the parking area. Walk down the gully on the trail, scramble down the slab, and head south. It is an obvious crack and hard to miss.

Protection

This route can be top roped off of trees, lead with a couple stoppers and finger - hand sized cams, or highball bouldered depending on your climbing ability / insanity level.

The hand crack portion was disgusting and difficult due to the wet, calcifying animal urine trickling down the sides. Definitely not worth setting up a toprope for this garbage. Save yourself the smelly hands and go do the Scoop Arete then The Scoop. Sep 5, 2017

Yes, this is at the scoop area. It made more sense to me to put it here because the driving directions for the Land of Overhangs area is more appropriate then the Rotary Park directions. I'm a little confused as to why the Scoop is listed under Rotary in the first place. Jun 1, 2009

I got the name for this one out of the Horsetooth Hang guidebook. If someone knows of a "more official" name or who did the FA, post up. It's a fun little crack problem, and there aren't many in the FoCo area, so I though it be worth posting up. May 4, 2009
