A fun finger crack that requires some layback and jamming skills. Pull on and layback the crack for a move or two until you can get a high fingerlock and some toes in the crack. Grab the juggy lip and topout to the right to avoid the tree.

Incorrectly called Backside Arete in the guidebook, which then describes it as "climb the crack."


Backside of the Outback Boulder. Look for the finger crack facing away from the Method Boulder. Downclimb an easy face to the right.

I don't remember sitting down - I just got my hands as low as they would go before the crack closed up. Mar 6, 2012
