DescriptionExcellent and dramatic movement for such a short route. The tight finger crack starts from the lower of the tiered ledges. The hardest moves are off the belay. Enjoy the finger jamming up to the heart-shaped double chockstones and crank to your right. (going straight up is a bad idea). Finish with some thoughtful moderate face climbing moves, using double incipient cracks.
LocationThe nice tiered ledge is the landmark for this and surrounding routes; these are the belays of our wives. Start from the lower tier.
NOTE: The finger crack that leads directly above the upper tier is a bit harder and dead ends into some very precarious looking large blocks, or safely finish with neighboring routes.
