Description

Gorgeous, continuous crack feature that is often running with water. But when it isn't, it is one of the best 5.8 handcracks around.

Location

Just right of Darkness on the Edge

Protection

Lots of mid sized cams. Nothing bigger than a #2 camalot. Rappel from rings at double bolt anchor.

Nice route although a bit green and mossy...but it wasn't running water. Seemed more of fingers and thin hands then hands for move. A must do in the area. May 26, 2014

Excellent route! Similar to the first 2 pitches of the Womb in style (mostly finger crack), and easily as good as those pitches. If it's dry, do it. One 60 meter is just enough to get down. Oct 14, 2016
Second pitch is dirty and doesn't protect well. I remember something like a 60ft run out over 5.8 lichen friction. Bring tat for a tree and don't slip on the mossy wet pine needles on top! May 7, 2017
