Crossed Fingers ascends the finger/hand crack that trends left. When the crack/dihedral becomes slabby, step up and right onto the three downward-facing, fingers of rock. Diagonal right to cross the fingers and continue up the easy climbing to the anchor.


The route is located on the right side of The Quarry. The start of Crossed Fingers is located in the crack system 30 feet to the right of Alien Heads/River Dance and is located to the left of the Practice Roof.


Standard gear rack to 4 inches and slings. The anchor consists of two coldshuts.

The Hass guidebook says to take the horizontal crack right just before the fingers and then follow the hand / wide crack to the top. We did it this way and found it enjoyable. Feb 15, 2016

There are a hundred variations of for this route and For Better Or Worse. From the undercling start on the far left to the offwidth on the right, there are so many fun crack systems to hop on and enjoy. The anchors are in a good place, so the rope runs smoothly. It is also possible to climb Chockstone Chimney, set up the toprope, and whip the rope over the bulge over to these climbs (since they share anchors). Jul 9, 2017
