Description

Fingers to hands on a pretty good crack (great crack for shuteye) under a massive roof with a wild heel hook move to get on top. Wicked fun.

== Detailed Beta ==

Start with fingers in the obvious crack until they become hands at the curve. Now start over with thin fingers widening incrementally until good hands and awesome hands into the lichen under the chimney. A high hand jam followed by a solid left foot jam to move your body onto the overhanging arete with good right hand on lip. Press hard against the arete and walk your foot out to a depression before swinging a to a heel hook around and pull hard up. I partially sat on the lip as I pulled myself up and moved into the finger crack. Walk up the crack delicately and reach anchors.

Location

From the base of voodoo, walk right around the feature until you see a black stained wall. Approach to find this 10d on the right with a roof.

You can hike around to the top, rap a gear anchor to the chains and then top rope the route. Didn't extend the anchor over the edge so there was some dragging, but the rope never caught on any sharp lips nor pulled me of while doing the roof thanks to the wide cut in it you use to jam.
