Description

Climb the dike to the base of the roof sporting a 4 inch jam crack. The start is a little mungy but should clean up. Hand jam, fist jam, scum, stack, and whatever else you feel like doing out the off set crack. A nice ledge and a fixed anchor awaits after you pull the lip. You can walk/scramble to and fro this ledge.

[Hide Comment] Back in the 80's, a rumor started about this fist crack that Kurt Winkler and Mike Hartrich had found. It went out a big roof and they couldn't do it. That was saying something for those two.
Of course no on said where it was... I figured that i had no chance May 22, 2012
