Upper hand crack

Description 

Amazing fingers and hand crack on the south face of the arete. Crux is located in the upper vertical hand crack. First ascent is unknown. Route was re-discovered by D. Harris and A. Tomasi in the winter of 2017 while they were bolting the route Hijos de Luz on the north side of the arete. They thought they had done a first ascent of the crack until they found rappel rings at the top.

Location 

Follow the gulley up from Ventana Sur sport climbing area. To access the upper crack climbing you can climb various easier (4/5) trad routes from numerous directions, take your pick. Once the crack is climbed there are more bolts (Hijos de Luz) going to the top. Rappel Hijos de Luz with a single 60m rope or bring two 60m ropes to return to the base of Hijos de Oscuridad.

Protection 

Bring a double set of cams up to #3, nuts are also useful. There are some trees to sling and various rappel rings.
