Description

This is the crack system that splits the orange band of rock near the center of the lower half of the wall. At the point the route hits the mini-roof below the wide groove roughly halfway up it is reasonable to avoid the runout finish above by traversing right around the arete to reach the anchors on Tool Man. This makes for a decent, albeit less adventurous, variation to the original route which continues up the groove (appears to offer very little pro if any) to a ledge and follows a nasty looking, left-facing chimney to the top of the wall.

Location

This is the crack system just left of Tool Man with low angle, broken, black rock at the start (may be wet). The variation shares 2 bolt ring anchor with Tool Man or the original route continues up to the top (no anchor).

Protection

Standard light rack up to around a #2 Camalot.
