  • Description 

    This is a fun hand crack through a series of roofs. It's a little mossy but still fun. Start on top of the large boulders on the NW face of The Dome. Look for the obvious, wide crack above a right-facing corner.

    P1: Gain the obvious wide hand crack either by running out the slab or starting in the right-facing corner. Climb the bulging hand and fist crack and mossy face moves to a stance below the next roof (5.9).

    P2: Climb the crack, going through two roofs, then traverse left to a ledge with four trees (5.9).

    P3: Meets up with NW Face. Climb the left-sloping dihedral undercling then follow a ramp right to another ledge. Classic!(5.9).

    P4: Follow cracks to summit (5.6).


    Standard rack to 4".
