This is a short but powerful finger tip lieback crack. Most of the moves are 5.11a with a short .12a section up high. All falls are clean and on good pro. The chains at the top are difficult to reach unless you climb high and clip them from the side. Great for running laps. Part of the strong fingers training circuit.


In the trees between Blotto and English Breakfast Crack.


Small gear only. Just look up at the crack and you can see the size.

This climb is relatively new to the area and I'm surprised it wasn't established earlier. The gold granite is beautiful and great quality. A great workout! See how many laps you can run before you fall, head down to Short Circuit and do the same, then grab a beer or six.

What climbs might be considered part of the strong fingers training circuit?

Not one to try when you are already pumped. Definately would be easier if you have the route wired beacuse there is no time to figure it out while climbing before getting pumped.

This route was "established" earlier, as a top rope after finishing English breakfast Crack. People have been TRing it for 30 years.

I had to aid this guy to hit the chains. After that I topped it a few times and came to the conclusion that this is something to be practiced. It is a really fun climb.
