Ben working the unrelenting finger cracks of Di-vi...


This is the far left finger crack system that starts just above the base and is left leaning. A very short yet challenging, laid back shallow finger crack that eases up as it goes on. First move up the finger crack is the most difficult with each subsequent move eventually easing up to a 5.7+ by the anchors. The increasing holds size and reducing overhang are a welcome relief after the first couple crack moves.

Rating moved to 5.10d to reflect challenging nature of initial sequence up the finger crack.


Left side of Vineyard Cove wall


5 bolts to anchor.

Note that hangers are camo'd extremely well but they are there; it may take a minute or two to spot them all from the ground.

If you've got lady fingers you'll find this route enjoyable. The crack is has perfect 3/4" locks which is just my size. My partner however, has sausage fingers and had to milk the opening moves and didn't appreciate the next set much either.

Me, I liked it so much I led it twice. Now the crux (for me) was actually where the crack was almost gone yet the wall was at it's steepest.


p.s. Hey Daryl, what makes this (and the others on this wall) Alpine? Just wondering

I've been trying to figure out how to remove that Alpine remark... there's a couple that show up with that attribute for some reason. Anyone know how to remove it?

May be obvious, but a small cam (red C3, blue Metolius) between the first and 2nd bolt removes the PG-13 part. Maybe I was just tired from 2 days of multi pitching but it seemed pretty hard for a 10d.
