Description 

Short fun route for practicing thin hands size crack.

Begin with easy stemming between columns to a stance on top of a pillar, then the business begins. Make several strenuous thin hands jams until the crack widens to 2 inches.

You can top rope the 5.12 and 5.11 routes to the left from the anchor.

Location 

Easy to find, it's located at the apex of the entire crag, where The Bend literally bends from north to south. Look for the comfy clearing between some trees for the belay.

Protection 

You can get away with a single rack to 2". Maybe bring doubles in .5 and .75 camelot if you really need to sew it up.

For a short route, this is surprisingly pumpy, if you have small hands it maybe easier, otherwise it is laybacks.
