Jacob Krenn flirting with the business on Helen.


Use a fingerlock to sit-start from the block at the base of the left-slanting crack. Progress up through a hand jam, possibly a chicken wing (if you can get Helen to open up the kitchen), a knee lock, and then back down the size range through hands to finger locks. Top out on jugs leading left of the bulge on the next rock tier (watch for some loose rock at the top).

This is the best route at Wiedman so far.

Classic crack problem! This thing has a smattering of each size jam, minus fists or off-hands. Very aesthetic climbing.
