GPS Crack

Description 

Squirm up a chimney, then out onto the face. Jam a hand crack over a small roof, trending left and up a right-facing corner to the top. Bouldery start, but look for a golden fist-jam in the crack to get your body upright.

Location 

30' right of The Obsessed.

Protection 

mid-sized gear.

Classic route. A stout 5.9 if you're crack technique isn't what it should be. Nevertheless, a must if you're at Suck Creek.

This climb is awesome! Stout overhanging start, short chimney, good hands, good gear, steep and exposed. Right up there with one of the best crack lines in the Chatt area.
5.9 climbers will struggle with this one. 5.10 climbers might say this is every bit of 10-, since the start is so pumpy. Way harder than Where Lizards... roof at TWall which is a 5.9 roof IMO.
