The crack.

Description 

This is a very pretty thin crack. The rock quality is stellar.

The crux is tips laybacking down low. Power through to a good rest midway, then easier finger locks to the top.

Location 

The crack is on the west side of a large boulder, 150 yards southwest of Alligator Tears. It is not visible from the trail.

Protection 

Thin to 1"

Dude.

How are you such a bada**?

Getting tons of inspiration from your Vimeo page - great clips of climbs I know, great clips of climbs I want to find. Thanks for putting up that resource for the rest of us. Great stuff, and strong work.

Burch you're way too kind. Chalk up any appearance of badassness to smoke, mirrors, photoshop, trick photography, and cheap malt liquor.
Hope to see you out climbing soon.

I probably over-starred this thing because I had a good time on the day I climbed it.
I bouldered it but a fall would be horrendous. Too tall for bouldering, too short for leading. It's killer for its length, but probably best as a toprope. Can a toprope get max stars??
