Description

Just to the right of Potholes Crack on the Back Wall. Staying right of the crack on the face all the way up You start out on crimps and two backsteps five feet right of the crack, then climb up and left. . Gotta hook the tip of your thumb to step onto some crimps, then you move into the crux in which all of your weight is on just your left toe and your right hand with your right foot flagging so you're sideways (looks cool). After the crux you're in a rest position doing the splits (looks cool), then it's an under cling and two crimps to get over the bulge. It takes a very creative sequence.

David was thinking of Banana Split since you have to do the splits on the route, but to mark the occasion of Charles' Tozan's move to Florida in a few weeks, he went with "Charles Split."

Location

Located on the back wall just right of Pothole's Crack on the face.

Protection
