Description 

This super hand crack is just to the right of the top half of Greenpeace. The first ascentionists didn't place bolts, so to get to the base of the crack proper they would pendulum over from gear on Greenpeace or lower from the top to access it. If you have a good wingspan, this could be completely freed with the addition of a few bolts to protect a line of pockets that would lead you up to join the crack from the first belay of Greenpeace. When I checked it out it didn't look like it would be too hard (maybe easy 11), but you would need about 4 inches more reach than I have (I'm 5.8) to do the initial reach over from Greenpeace. I think it has been years since this has been climbed on, so it will need some cleaning to be most enjoyable.
