Appealing and interesting climbing, though more-or-less over half way up.

Climb the short finger/hand crack 10 feet, then traverse left 5-6 feet to gain another similar crack. Finish the second crack to easier (boring) climbing above.


Start 15 feet right of Christmas Crack and 10 feet left of Right-hand Trinity. Identify with route description above.

Walk off right past Flying Buttress.


Standard rack. Doubles in finger/hand sizes. Long draws for traverse.
