BETA PHOTO: Exit on the 5.4 slab and then go over to the worm ...

This is a perfect beginner's hand crack just to the right of worm drive. This crack is left leaning and utilizes the left side as a slab/ramp for feet. Begin behind the large boulder. A 'crux' move is near the top when the crack opens up to a fist jam. The climb finishes out left to a 5.4 slab. Belay from the worm drive anchors or behind the top of the slab- then lower off Worm Drive's anchors.


This climb is just right of Worm Drive about 7 feet.


Hand sizes & a #4 Camalot (protects the top before the slab). Lower off of Worm Drive's anchors.

What is the amazing crack just to the right of this climb? A friend and I climbed it today. I can't believe there isn't a line of people waiting to do that thing.

I think the route to the right is a 5.9-, or so I heard as reported in the guidebook. I thought it was 5.9, but I worked harder than that up top given my own set of errors. It is a beauty. Climbed it yesterday morning not knowing what it was - the wind whips through the crack and blows out to you (when from the west) as the crack goes all the way through the formation. Quite remarkable - this uniqueness and the route overall.

The crack to the right is first gear. 5.9- in my humble opinion, it is one of the best climbs at the grade at the Voo. From fingers to hands to fists to offwidth, it keeps you thinking all the way. Great gear and rests. Stellar!
