This climbs the finger and hand crack on the right side of the crag..As usual with the harder lines in the area, this is an eliminate. Avoid using any of the face holds and just use the crack. Also avoid stemming all the way out left.

Sit start bellow the crack with your right hand in a bad finger lock, and your left below it on an undercling/sidepull. Pull off the ground with great difficulty and lunge for a painful horizontal crack. Make another move a better hand jam up higher, then climb to the top. 


To the right of Peninsula. The obvious finger and hand crack.

[Hide Comment] Attempts were made to start on the undercling below the finger lock, but its proved to be too difficult for a mere mortal like myself. If sent it would be a much more "natural" (i.e lower) start and significantly harder. May 16, 2019
