DescriptionIf you don't want to lead Five Year Debate, this is the access route to the anchor on top. It is a very short but very perfect hand crack. Not worth climbing as a route in itself, basically because of the length, though it is fun. You could also use it as a downclimb after climbing Five Year Debate but it is not recommended and spicy to downclimb.
LocationFrom the approach gully, turn left through a super narrow slot which will get you behind the spire. Spiral up and right to a ledge and you will see this joyful little crack.
