Description

Use a fingerlock to sit-start from the block at the base of the left-slanting crack. Progress up through a hand jam, possibly a chicken wing (if you can get Helen to open up the kitchen), a knee lock, and then back down the size range through hands to finger locks. Top out on jugs leading left of the bulge on the next rock tier (watch for some loose rock at the top).

Location

Right side of the Upper Guardrail Ridge bouldering wall.

Classic crack problem! This thing has a smattering of each size jam, minus fists or off-hands. Very aesthetic climbing. Oct 27, 2016
