Description

You'll find this monster directly below Brinton's Buttress. Move down through the talus until you come upon a large overhanging boulder with a huge roof fist crack. The Good - it's a giant roof crack. The Bad - it's painful as hell. Tape is highly recommended.

Location

Too the left of the Murder for Midgets boulder

Protection

Bring like 3-4 pads for this one. The second half protects well, but the first half is kinda shitty.

I dunno, could be V8+, or V4, personally I have no idea how to jam anything past fist, so I couldn't really tell lol

I think if you reach deep enough it could stay fist jams, but it slowly widens towards the lip. Apr 10, 2012

What size crack is that? Apr 10, 2012
Mr Mix sent yesterday. Big deep fists are needed. I could barely get it started and took a nasty upside down fall, several pads are good with some creative spotting. Apr 11, 2012

Thanks to Remo, Vinny, and Nick for helping me drag down a stack of pads and attempting to spot me. This is definitely a unique climb. I'm hoping other crack lovers will get on this. It is easy to find about 100 feet under Gill's Nose at the base of a huge white pine. The crack is about 4 inches wide and tapers as it goes up (big fists will fit low in the crack, smaller handed folks need to shove their arms much further up. I started fists and feet in the crack as far right as I could and slowly (and painfully) made my way out. It takes a special kind of person to like this one! John could you change the name to "Fist Fight". Apr 11, 2012

Thx buddy. Apr 15, 2012
a real blue collar problem! v5 or under. Apr 30, 2012
I think for the true send one would have to get as deep as possible in the back of the alcove without their back touching the other rock and their feet facing out, then shuffle the fists a bit until they can swing the legs around to the back. I don't think it has been sent this way yet. All of us thus far were starting roughly in the middle of the crack with out feet facing inward. May 5, 2012
