Description Suggest change

This wide crack is named after the person who discovered Shepherd Springs. Chimney moves along with a layback get you into another wide section of chimney with options for small gear available. Either plug a #7 Camalot deep inside or trust the sparse pro and do everything you possibly can to wiggle up beneath the crux overhang. Work an arm-bar jam up high and hit an obvious jug, battle the pump and bump through good holds to the anchors.
