Description 

A great little warm up for the area. Climb good jams with a stem out left, then the crack widens when it zig-zags. This is the crux. Belay off of slings around a bush or walk off to the right.

Location 

This is the right of three cracks at he bottom of the Finger Lickin' area. The first to be reached on the approach trail.

Protection 

Single set of gear. Extra in the hand sizes and a #4 friend may be useful.

Awesome climb. Two different optional starts for first 15 feet. Left for perfect hands, right for thin hands/lieback. Bring three 3s for the top, felt runout with only 2x.

There's a bolted anchor at the top between this and Snatch Power, works to rap from both of them.

Clean and fun, splitter, but very short.
