Really nice hand crack, Drew. Thanks for establishing this route so long ago. I finally got over to climb it. Great hand crack and deeply inset. I would say it's a stiff 5.9. I think the technical crux may be the first move or two off the ground to get high enough where you can start hand jamming. Once the crack gets deep enough (maybe 50' off the deck), it becomes a bit offwidth, but there is a separate crack back deep in the off width which cannot be seen that provides decent jams. I pulled on a large rock that almost ripped off just below the anchors. I put it back, asked everyone to get out of the way, and let it fly. Should be good to by now. Apr 7, 2015
