Description [Edit]

Thin pinky jams from a Chinle band leads to a bigger size. Keep jamming up a widening crack as it gets steeper. You can get a hand in once in a while. When it gets steepest, it gets easier. It can be dirty.

Location [Edit]

This lies a hundred yards past Big Hands Roof and around the corner. It is the prominent, pale corner.

Protection [Edit]

Blue Metolius. Doubles maybe triples through fingers and #0.75. Doubles #1 and one #2.

Used to be a plaque here reading:
"Fork It" HVS (I think that's a British grade). Mar 14, 2011

HVS means hard, very severe. Contrary to how it sounds, it translates to somewhere around 5.8 depending on the protection. Mar 14, 2011

Just wondering if this is a little easier than Rednekk or is it still a lot of baggy fingers? Apr 11, 2011

Very difficult to compare to Rednekk. For me, I would say this one might be a fair bit easier. Definitely way easier than Pump Station (I would say close to a number grade easier). This might be due to the fact that the average giraffe on roller skates is a helluva a lot better at liebacking than I am. The crux on Fork It is pretty brief, I usually jam instead of layback. I can kind of see the possibility of doing it on stoppers, at the start, but it would get grim pretty quick.... Apr 11, 2011

I'm not suggesting it was less than grim, Slim. I was 17 years old. Death wasn't much on the radar in those days. Thought I could survive anything. May 24, 2011
