Description

This finger crack follows a right-facing corner, and is the best natural line at Johns Wall. Stem your way up passing 2 or 3 bulges. The crux is near the top, where the climb overhangs and the crack thins. Stem and pull on pockets through this to the chains. Rated 5.9 in the old guide.

Location

The obvious right-facing corner with a finger crack in the center of Johns.

Protection

Cams from TCUs to 2", nuts. Larger cams (3" and 4") can be placed in a couple of places but are by no means necessary.

2-bolt anchor, with chains, for rappelling.
