DescriptionFirst let me start by saying that I can't possibly claim the first ascent of this incredible splitter; however, I can claim that it is, "an incredible splitter!" This is the center crack in the face just left of the large, laser cut roof at the bottom of the cliff.
P1. Start with some hard to protect moves getting into the crack, then climb straight up with mostly hands for almost 200'. It ends with an angling hand traverse right to a good stance.
P2. Continue up the crack up with some 5.9 boulder problems for another 50'-60' and belay.
When rapping back down, we found evidence of some purple webbing at the top of the dihedral on the right side of the cliff, indicating that it had been climbed before.
