This may be one of the longest and better moderate finger cracks in BCC, with some tricky face climbing to get to it. Warm up by face climbing past the right-most of the pair of bolts that gives access to the ledge that is about 25 feet up. Two more bolts above the ledge protect face moves into the crack. Jam and layaway to crack's end and chains.


Approach as for Social Engineering. Lower from chains.


Set of wires and cams to a red Camalot (no. 1); consider doubling up on cams in the thin fingers size.

A great 5.9 that is long. On par with something like the diving board in terms of diffculty, but with better gear.

A climb that is more technical than hard. Good pro, nice body positions, and a continuous theme. My second Wasatch climb and my first Wasatch lead. Nice!

Great new route addition, JS. Fun climbing, interesting moves, and steep fun. Nice work!

Great route! The moves are more technical than hard but super fun to figure out. Mostly sustained moves for 80'. A few more face climbing moves after the bolts land you in the awesome crack (the real reason I came for it). The pro is typical BCC, so bring your stoppers! PS...Found a quickdraw up there on 7/4/16. Send me an email if it's yours. Cheers!
