Description

One of the coolest easy splitter cracks in the NRG. Looks like someone just grabbed the rock and pulled it apart. Starts in a hand/fat hand crack and goes up a slabby to vertical face with the crack narrowing to fingers at the top. From here, you can either build an anchor on the ledge with horizontals above the big Hueco and bring up your second, or you can place a piece, sling it long and cruise the short but beautiful dihedral to the top.

Location

About 100 yards past Springboard and Triple Treat climbers right.

Protection

Single #3-.5 for the first part and some nuts and maybe a small cam for the second part. Small cams to build an anchor on the ledge if you want to do this in 2 pitches. Two bolt anchor at the top.
