Description 

Truly a tick list climb. This is the mythic Bellingham finger crack. Steep jugs, fingers, a fist, hands... This short route packs a lot of variety.

Protection 

Anchor from trees or gear to one inch.

At some point, the left side of the fist jam broke off. The move over the lip is more technically challenging however it's less sustained as there's now a high left foot.
