Description

This pitch is deserving of it's own page.

From the large belay ledge on top of pitch 2, head up and slightly right through blocky, ledgy terrain until under a small roof. Step left and out onto the airy face with the beautiful hand crack above you. Climb up over the very airy bulge through the crack (crux) for about 15', to finish on easier ground to the top. Though harder than the standard finish, this is WAY more fun. Highly recommended.

Descent: 1 rappel off of summit, and one from the midway grassy ledge to the base, same as Standard Route.

Location

From top of 2nd pitch of the Standard Route, this is the hand crack about 10' to the right of the standard chimney finish.

Protection

Will take everything from small brass nuts to a #3 BD C4. Chain anchors on summit.
