Description

The only PERFECT splitter I've ever climbed in the BTC, in a nice, left-facing dihedral. The lower portion of the crack is small hands and a crimp or two leading to a 2 foot ledge in the middle of the route. The last 20 feet is large hands and a jug to large fists at the top. Fun, just not long enough!

Location

Right (NW) of Continuity about 20 yards, scramble up the hillside to the base of the crack. You can't miss it.

Protection

#6 TCU, #2 Camalot, #3.5 Camalot.
Bring a long (3 foot) sling, a big horn is up top for an anchor. As well as a finger sized crack.

BG's Corner works for me. I just wish there were more of these clean/solid cracks around. Well, I guess I will keep looking. Mar 21, 2010
Bodypainting: just for clarification, I did not climb this route the days I spent at Continuity Crag, so go ahead and claim the FA if you'd like (I know of no one else who's done it), and name it whatever you wish (BG's Corner is fine with me, though all I did was look at it -- glad to hear it's as nice as I imagined it would be).
