Description

Walk up a easy slab and then pull into an overhanging crack that looks just like the 2nd Pitch of Rattletale (Splitter). Place a #4 do some face moves then climb the splitter hands (Loose 2's tight 3's) until a tricky top out brings you to the bolts.

Location

Approach as if you are walking towards the World Wall, right before the wall you will see a Splitter overhanging crack on your left, walk 45 feet up a trail to the left. 

Protection

Scramble up the unprotected 5- slab, place a #4, the rest of the crack takes #2s and #3s . Two (1/4 inch) bolts and chain up top.

Splitter, looks just like the second pitch of rattletale. although its short with some traffic and cleaning this will be a solid 3 star crack.

[Hide Comment] Myself and Zach Parsons gave this route a thorough scrubbing today, it is now clean and awaiting more ascents. Combine this with mambo jambo for an awesome day of Little Si handjamming! Jun 9, 2019

[Hide Comment] Really good climb. If you're a crack climber go get on this and keep it from getting swallowed by the forest. Slammer hands and really secure stemming. Don't let the overhanging nature scare you away. Super soft for the grade Jul 11, 2020
