Description

Scramble up the boulders at the base of the climb to begin this striking wide hands crack. Sink your fists deep into the crack and jam your way upward. Slightly overhanging in nature, the lower section of the crack is bomber. Continue up with the crack growing ever so slightly wider until the top section begs to spit you out. Plentiful holds on the face throughout can be utilized for substantially easier climbing. Extremely enjoyable climbing while unfortunately being rather short. The crack takes hands to fist-sized gear and larger pieces at the top. It is possible to scramble up the surrounding boulders to access the anchors for a top rope or to downclimb.

Location

Located on the east face of the Entrance Boulder in a corridor, around the corner from Welcome to Pinnacles.

Protection

Large gear to 4", 2 bolt anchor

Decent climbing but woefully short even by HVP standards. Sep 24, 2015
