This variation of Manager's Special was kindly offered by Z Robinson to R Duncan on April 9th. A fun route that is capped by an absolutely stellar finger crack (that just doesn't seem long enough!). A hand crack to a tenuous slab step-over move, to a splitter finger crack (with good feet in the finger crack!)


Same as for Manager's Special, except upon completion of the hand crack (before entering the gaping chimney/offwidth) step up and left to gain the obvious splitter finger crack.


Bring pro from small fingers (blue aliens) to 3.5". A few long runners are needed to keep the rope drag manageable. A bolt protects the delicate and exciting slab move that is necessary to gain the killer finger crack. Two bolt anchor. Easily rapped with a 60m.


Excellent! Glad you got the vision and did it. I assume you have the one (very necessary) new bolt, then the anchors right by the bomber finger crack (put in previously), then to the top to the anchors of King Lizard? Apr 10, 2010

Exactly. It almost seems like each piece should be extended once you are past it. The step over onto the slab is great.

This route was almost named Delicacy. Apr 10, 2010
It's a very cool move, stepping left out of the Manager's Special and around the prow--very improbable, LCC slab magic! What a day! S Apr 11, 2010

'delicacy' fits with the managers special theme better, and that step over move shouldn't be forgotten! May 2, 2010
