This is a strongly overhanging dihedral with finger and hand jams. It's lots of fun, although the crack isn’t very solid near the start. This route is not in the 1992 Vogel Guide.


About 200 yards northeast of the Hershey Kiss is an obvious overhanging right-facing corner on brown rock.

The name comes from educator Christa McAuliffe's quote - "I touch the future, I teach" - appropriate as one of the FA party was/is a teacher.
