Description

Awesome hand crack just outside of the Corridor. Climb the splitter and then traverse left along and up ledges to the anchor on Corridor Crack.

Location

Go through the Boxtop Corridor, past Corridor crack and find the splitter hand crack around the corner.

Protection

1-3 Camalots with some smaller stuff to protect the traverse. Bring slings.

From the associated photo, this appears to be an existing climb - Boxtop Crack, 5.7. It's in the new Bingham guide. Are you sure this is a first ascent? Sep 13, 2016
Having never done this, my guidebook description is pretty vague. The topo shows the line joining "Boxtop Traverse", rather than cutting left. Thanks for clarifying, but I'm pretty sure this obvious crack has been done before, and probably shouldn't be renamed. Cheers. Jun 15, 2017
Climbed this line and traversed right to the arete after the obvious handcrack ends. Airy position, a bit of spice and some initially very thin gear after the traverse get you to the right side of the boxtop traverse. Probably goes around .7 or .8 R. Jun 20, 2017
