A fun hand crack on the backside of the formation. Great first trad lead too. Easy free solo if that is your thing.


Once you pop out on the trail at the formation it is around the left side of the rock. Easily identifiable by the large hand crack.


.3-#3 Camalots allows you to place every 2 feet. Great first trad lead.

A very cool crack! Even if it's only just a V0.

One of the most classic routes I have seen around anchorage. Although short, definitely a fun on to run laps on.
