The upper hand crack.

Description 

Ever wonder why Hammerhead just ended at the tree and look up into the chimney and wonder where it went? Well, it's an easy chimney with great rock that protects well (if you need to) and it pops you out right near a nice hand crack that leads to the top of the formation that has "Hammerhead" and "Ojos del Diablo" on the S face, "Damsels in Distress" on the east face, "Hidden Splendor" and "Changes in Attitude" on the north face and now new routes as well.

Location 

Straight up from Hammerhead and you'll see the new anchors on top. A single line rap from there will get you easily to the anchors on top of "3 Amigos".

Protection 

Any size gear will work in the great rock in the chimney. The hand crack section will take a #4, #3, and #2 and you probably won't need more than that and can get by without the 4 as I did the first time.
