Description Suggest change

This perfect splitter handcrack is really a continuation of Libra Crack but is often climbed by itself. To climb the crack w/o climbing Libra there is now only a single commonly climbed option:

Climb the 5.0 gully past the giant rings and follow the corner (part of GNS) before traversing right to the base of the 5.6 hand crack. The crack starts just above Libra Crack. It is important to note that the Index Town Walls guide book by Kalman and Van Biene include Libra crack (5.10a) as part of the original Pisces route and therefore rates Pisces a 5.10a.

It used to be possible to climb the 5.4 corner above, and just left, of Blockbuster before traversing left past an arete to the base of the crack. However the blockbuster boulder was pushed off the wall with a hydraulic jack presumably for safety reasons. The remaining wall is no longer commonly climbed and the Blockbuster route is gone forever.
