Description

The route ascends parallel cracks, an offset hand/fist splitter and a finger crack in a corner. The climbing is very 3-dimensional and there are several good rests. A great top rope variation ascends the splitter thin hands to small fingers crack through a body length pod left of the main route (5.11).

Location

This route is ~40 feet left of Big Foot and hidden in a recessed, right-facing corner.

The crack is mostly too wide (except the start) to jam so I chimneyed the whole thing. Didn't feel like .9+ doing it in that style. Maybe .8. Good pro in right corner, yellow Alien to #3 Camalot and nuts. No need for large pro. Good route! Dec 29, 2009

I remember getting great cups and fists in the splitter. We took several laps on this thing climbing the cracks separately. Whatever way you climb it, it is a fun and worthy line. Jan 9, 2010
