Short hand crack splitter going from thin hands to #3 camalots. A little bulge is the crux. There are a couple face features that can be used if so desired.


#1-3 camalots.

In one of first text to cover the area (Bjørnstadt's Desert Rock - Rock Climbs in the National Parks) this route is the Boulder Overhang. If you prefer also, it is an easy scramble around left to build a TR anchor (#3 Camalot and some smaller TCUs)

Thanks Jared! I've edited the name to reflect the original. I made a TR anchor with 3x #3 Camalots, but that did involve getting pretty close to the edge.
