Description 

There are a few ways to begin this route, all of which lead to a very large ledge about 20' off the deck. Climb up another 10' or so until you hit a small roof. From here, you have the choice to begin climbing up the left crack or the right crack. For the left crack, head left straddling a bulge that runs the length of the left crack. Not sure on the crux, possibly the last few moves just below the anchor.

Location 

Just left of The Diamond, one of the first routes you come to after descent from Sunset Rock proper. Route is situated in a corner with two slightly overhung and obvious crack systems that share anchors: Righthand Crack and Lefthand Crack.

Protection 

Standard rack. Anchors w/rings. Can be easily accessed from top for rap down.

Climb this like the hand crack God intended it to be and you won't be disappointed. Stellar hands the whole way up. Don't be tempted by all the face stuff right and the small arete to the left. They are not your friends. Stay in the crack...stay in the crack...stay in the crack
