Description

This supposedly is the tamer version of the TT cracks. Step across a hole and enter the deep embrace of the flaring chimney. Maneuver around a chockstone to a shelf. Next tackle 15-20 feet of offwidth and you are done. If you loathe offwidth, step a few feet to your left and finish on TTL's hand crack (physically harder but technically easier for me).

I was a bit tired, but personally I thought Handjacker was easier than this climb. I think 5.6 may be a bit of a sandbag but another effort is in order before passing final judgment.

Location

This climb is between the Three Sisters Area and the Practice Slab Area. To locate the start either scramble in from the right (Practice Slab Area) or climb one of the Tarsalation climbs. There are a few ways to get down, but the quickest is to use the Practice Slab anchor if not in use.

Protection

I used from #3 to #6 cams (Friends/Camalots). Save a #5 & #6 for the offwidth.
