BETA PHOTO: Caul of the Child (green topo line) is the obvious...

Description 

An interesting narrow twin crack stem box, and would be much easier for child size fingers. Really cool looking feature. Harder than it looks, though easier than it may first seam...

Begin off the belay stance with some opposition contortions and tight tips jamming. Utilize thoughtful resting techniques. Helmet recommended due to proximity of the right wall. Difficulties ease somewhat near the top of the stembox. Exit left of the suspect blocky roof in an inset crack.

Location 

see picture topo. Locate the obvious shaded stembox on the Cwm Laude Wall, to the left of the Four Cwm Corners.

Protection 

Rack: many in the thin fingers pieces, some stoppers, up to #.75C4. bring a few runners for the top.
Top anchor could take .75 and .4 C4 backed-up by tree or other creative gear. Belay anchor is .75C4 in horizontal and a few stoppers.
