Description [Edit]

Start in the blocky corner, and move into the beautiful, arching finger and hand overlapping crack. Lock and jam your way to a place where you can move into the face above. Staying in the crack after the sidepull is a harder variation.

Location [Edit]

This climbs the obvious, arching finger and hand overlap.

Protection [Edit]

Finger to hand size cams and a couple of long slings.

The first half can safely be climbed as a boulder problem. If you are comfortable with overlapping hand cracks, this could be a highball as well. Sep 17, 2016
