DescriptionIn 2011, Matt and Will established a 13 meter Ding Dong's Crack, then in spring 2015, Mike Dobie spent two days cleaning, trundling some massive blocks, pushing the pitch to the top of the crack, making for an absolutely must-do, classic 28 meter pitch. No need to stop at the first anchor, keep going for one of the most memorable pitches in Li Ming!
A fingers corner opens into a nice offwidth then becomes a perfect leaning, slightly offset .5 to .75 splitter. Mantle the ledge and recover for part-two. Climb the tight flare with .5s and .75s to some exciting moves through the constriction into a final flare. Nest some bomber gear before committing to the spicy, fantastic finishing sequence.
