Description Suggest change

Tucked between the classics in the Waterfall's Hall of Giants. Flanked by Sweet Dreams, No Utopia, and Natural Enhancement, East Coast Fist Bump follows a splitter seam with a few small and crucial edges.

Fist Bump begins with moderate climbing through small dihedrals and blocks leading to a stem rest above a small roof. A thin seam leads up from the stem rest, beginning around tips size and quickly pinching down to purple metolius size.

An introductory boulder problem leads to a cutout in the crack, where the fun begins.

The most efficient beta for the crux sequence seems to be involve a right hand arete pinch and a cross to a left hand crimp on the arete.

Original "left" variation/eliminate is listed seperately as the OG Variation.

After the seam crux, the line continues up and slightly right through a small dihedral and arete to a good rest. Above the rest, another 45 feet of steep pocket and edge climbing leads to the anchor. Gear is thin for the last 45 ft. Expect offset nuts and sliders (PG-13?)

Location Suggest change

Begin just right of Sweet Dreams and climb directly up towards the thin seam.

Protection Suggest change

Cams from 000 to #1. Micro offsets and small nuts. Lowe-balls helpful to aid through the crux.
