  • Description 

    This is a short, overhanging, and leaning finger crack just to the right of the start of Trident. The most reasonable way to start seems to be on good holds near the start of Trident, and then traverse over. There's good gear available in a horizontal placement partway through the traverse. Although the crack is shallow, there are a few good fingerlocks and other handy features along the way. It eventually opens up to thin hands near the anchor.

    (The route name and first ascentionists were obtained from Steve Levin's excellent guidebook to the canyon.)

    Location 

    This is just to the right of Trident.

    Protection 

    Something small for the traverse into the crack (I used a blue Alien) and then #0.4 to #0.75 Camalots for the rest of the route. Because of the shallow nature of the crack, I found a #0.5 X4 Camalot to be useful. There's a single fixed-nut and biner for the anchor. It can be backed up with additional good gear if so desired.
