One of southwest Montana's nicest cracks despite its short length. Start with a short wider section that delivers you on a large ledge. From here, climb a brief section of hands and then enjoy the excellent tips and fingers crack (the crux), seeking out good feet outside the crack. Quite nice.


Uphill and on the opposite side of the buttress from Righteous are the Brave. Very obvious splitter.


Mostly fingers and tips (takes stoppers well). 1 or 2 hand sized. Maybe something wide for the initial bit, though it's short and protecting it might cause a bunch of drag. 2-bolt anchor on top.

Nice! #1 Metolius mastercams are very handy for the crux, if you don't want to fiddle with nuts. Oct 3, 2012
