Description

Edward Humid Hands ascends a perfect, mostly finger crack with a hand jam start and a flared fist jam finish. This is a gently left-leaning crack located in Rowdy's Corral (a round corral-like area to the left of The Spins, but accessible only from the back of the Plumb Line Upper Tier crag through a narrow slot).

Location

It is on Plumb Line Crag's upper tier central. It is inside Rowdy's Corral that is located to the left of The Spins. This is accessed from the back, and the best way to reach this is by going West from the top of Plumb Line, then North around the crag, then East along the backside. Walk up a fallen tree, turn right at the end of the tree, and go through a narrow corridor. There is a large block in the center of the corral. The climb starts below this block on the ground.

Protection

Yellow-red Aliens, #0.5 Camalot, #4 stopper, and a #1 Camalot. I drilled an anchor.

[Hide Comment] This crack is really good. I thought I had the area pretty well combed. I can't believe I missed it. It looks almost too short to be worth getting the rope out, but it is not to be missed. Aug 15, 2009

[Hide Comment] This is a good route with some challenge packed into its short length. Don't be deceived, it is harder than it looks. The downside about this route in my opinion are the boulders below that would be easy to hit in a fall. Be sure to stitch it up in a couple places. Nov 1, 2015
