BLM Managed Lands at Castle Rocks PERMANENTLY CLOSED TO CLIMBING!! Castle Rocks State Park lands are OPEN TO CLIMBING MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Alternate finish to Handy. The crack is the one to the right of the uppermost bush visible on the face from the base. There are two options for getting there:

1. From the top of the Hand(y) crack, traverse right, try to avoid getting covered in sap bushwhacking past the pine tree, and head up a dirty, mossy finger crack. Unpleasant but well protected.
2. From the first bolt on Handy, traverse right and up on 5.7-5.8 dikes and slabs to the crack. Good climbing but totally unprotected for 30'.

The crack itself is more like a seam with tiny nut placements.

Protection 

Small to micro nuts and cams. Two-bolt anchor in the alcove above, hard to see.
