Alternate finish to Handy. The crack is the one to the right of the uppermost bush visible on the face from the base. There are two options for getting there:

1. From the top of the Hand(y) crack, traverse right, try to avoid getting covered in sap bushwhacking past the pine tree, and head up a dirty, mossy finger crack. Unpleasant but well protected.
2. From the first bolt on Handy, traverse right and up on 5.7-5.8 dikes and slabs to the crack. Good climbing but totally unprotected for 30'.

The crack itself is more like a seam with tiny nut placements.


Small to micro nuts and cams. Two-bolt anchor in the alcove above, hard to see.
