Obvious, splitter OW. The bottom part of the climb is slightly overhanging, and goes from hands to fists (the crux).Pulling through the fists crux, then thrutching a ways will eventually land you in more straight forward OW technique (likely left side in) about halfway up the crack, with jugs on the outside near the top.Occasionally there are some hidden holds inside the crack as well....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
