Description

This is the hand crack that extends above the chimney described in Mind Blender. Crack is slightly overhanging for ~10 ft, and then arcs to the right, eventually straightening to arrive just below the anchor at the summit. This route is a superb second pitch to Space Walk.

Location

At the top of the chimney where Mind Blender begins. 6 ft to the right of the anchors for Space Walk, etc.

Did this yesterday with Matt. Anyone know the name?

Can get to it by climbing the chimney/offwidth below, or as a second pitch to Space Walk (a fun combo -- make sure the belayer is well tethered to the bolts!) Oct 17, 2016

This route is vaguely described in the Bartlett guide (and repeated in Miramontes) as a continuation of Space Walk and going at "5.7/5.8." But it definitely isn't that grade, so Alan B must've had bad intel or misremembered. Even by 80s-era trad grades in the park, this is solidly in the 10 realm. It's considerably harder than Captain Kronos, for instance. Much, much harder than Overseer or Prepackaged. Anyone with more accurate info on the FA would be appreciated (and if it had another name).

I see Mr Swain (GunksWest) describes this as a possible 2d pitch to Head Over Heals, if you take the RH crack variation. Oct 26, 2018
