Description

This is a fine finger and hand crack that pulls a really fun roof.

Although trad routes aren't typically allowed by the DWP, this one has so far slipped the staff's notice. Don't let that stop you, it is well protected with gear and offers secure finger and hand jams with plenty of good face holds.

Location

This is the prominent hand crack through the roof left of Walk the Yellow line.

Protection

Set of stoppers, tcu's, and cams to 2-1/2", more fingers than hands. Lower off anchor on Kelly's Heroes.

I think he's referring to Russ Walling's comment HERE
I'm guessing he's not familiar with Russ's sense of humor. Feb 8, 2012
What's that about trad routes not being allowed? Huh? There are dozens of trad routes in the gorge, they just don't get done that much. Feb 7, 2012
