Description

Probably the 3rd best hand crack at the main wall after Gold Rush and JR Token, although this one is going to feel quite a bit harder if you have large hands.

Place some good gear off the starting block and get ready for 10ft. of ringlocks before the hands start sinking in. The zig-zaging nature of the crack makes for easier-than-average feet, but the climbing is somewhat relentless.

Location

The obvious squiggly crack that lies 30-40ft. left of The Space Between.

Protection

Lots of small-hands pieces, and up to a #3 Camalot for the top.

Climbed this after JR Token and Goldrush, and I must say, it was my favorite. What a stellar climb. The ring locks at the beginning made for one of the more memorable starts of anything I've climbed. Nov 28, 2009

Best out of the classic hand cracks. Sustained variety! Finger locks to cups with a fun ending, Nov 10, 2014

If you have big hands make this one a 10.b/c! The start is...entertaining, tips and ringlocks. An adventure for those of us with fat knuckles from years of rock-a-buse. Dec 4, 2014

This was considered 11- in Jeff's first edition! Keeps getting downrated; get on it soon before it's down to 9+. Mar 2, 2015
