This fingery problem is one of the best moderates in the woods, but sadly it doesn't get much attention because nobody knows it's there. It starts in a crack (same start as Crack of Pain), follows a thin seam out right to a juggy arete, and finishes up the arete with some fun moves. Stand start with the vertical crack and some delicate feet. Stay tight with bad feet and small pods in the seam and work right to gain a better slot and then a jug on the arete. Work around the corner and straight up to the top.


On the Crack Boulder. This problem is on the back (the side facing away from the trail). Scramble off the boulder towards the trail.

This line is really awesome, only marred by its proximity to crack of pain. . .

Matt the start holds were dry today but barely, looked like it just stopped seeping recently but with the rain coming this week you might want to get out there today!
