Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Very short but sweet thin hand crack. Gymnastic and strenous moves with great protection, slightly overhanging and burly right to the chains. Possible to top rope by scrambling around to the back side of the large block.

Location 

Starts a bit to the right of Center Street on a big semi-detached block.

Protection 

Chain anchors. Two #3 Camalots and one #1 Camalot... you could bring more I suppose.

I was surprised when it didn't let up after the initial crack
