Ghost Dancing

Description

A great finger crack/lieback that you'll wish was longer. Begin the obvious finger crack on the north side of the corridor. Don't be tempted to back-step to other wall of the corridor (that would be too easy!), pull the desperate finish to the ledge. Next, traverse climber's left, turn-around and lean across the corridor to finish up the hand crack on the opposite wall.

Location

In the narrow corridor on the left end of this crag. Climb begins on the north side of the corridor and crosses over to finish on the south side.

[Hide Comment] Fun route! Clean crack combined with exfoliating face forces you to rely on your crack technique. The step across is a blast and ends with hero hand jams! Dec 12, 2016
