Description 

Sweet tips crack with delicate feet. Not sure on the rating, but I think it's correct. Head north about 50 yards past Rexrode Inn on the west side to the main crag. You can drop down to the right or left when you reach a north-facing dropoff. Anchor bolts for this and other climbs are obvious. This is my new favorite finger crack on the hill.

Didn't realize how long this climb was - tried to do this with my 25 meter (82 foot) rope...not happening. Probably need 100 ft to comfortably TR from the bolts with a ground belay.

Protection 

Looks like thin gear would do it - bolted anchor and walkoff make for an easy TR setup.

One of the best tips crack on the Hill and my personal favorite- long, splitter, and clean. It's away from crowds always in the shade (as far as I know). Must do!
