Description 

Awkward and deceptively demanding hand and fist crack. (VS 5a)

Location 

This is an obvious crack breaking the left side of the sickle buttress main face, 15 feet left of Sickle Buttress (S 4a) and Sickle Buttress Direct (VS 5a). Another grosser crack of similar description sits just a meter or two farther left (Broken Crack, VS 5a).

Protection 

Medium cams for breaks on the left, large cams for the crack itself.
