Description

This is a classic hand crack that runs up the center of the Bistro Wall. It's a great problem to do after finishing a few routes at Poland hill, or on its own. Start underneath a small roof, and pull through on good fingerlocks and pinches to gain the hand crack. This section might feel harder for those with a shorter reach. Solid jams lead to the top.

Location

Downhill and west of the trail leading to Poland Hill climbs. The Bistro Wall can be seen while driving down the dirt road, right before you get to the parking area, look towards the north across the beaver pond.

Protection

Pad and spotter.

Molony-

Yeah this can be a little scary without a spotter. I think hand size makes a big difference, I have thin hands and had some difficulty gaining purchase on the crack after pulling thru the roof, though the rest of the crack felt fairly secure ( except for the top which is much lower angle but a bit dirty if you stay in the crack). I tend to reach out on the face to the right to top out. Jul 18, 2009

It may be that I just have no balls or am a complete pansy, but none of the jams felt secure (to me), and the only reason I think I topped it out was because I was alone with one pad which didn't give me the option to back out. That said, awesome problem, the short roof section was really fun and interesting, and the dirty tight hands (for me) to the top was scary but definitely worth it. May 20, 2009
