Looking down from the top of "Little Bighorn&...

Description 

The route ascends the obvious hand/fist/offwidth crack some 50' left of The Firing Chamber chimney system. Pull through a small bulge off the ground on good hands then continue to the top in the wider but now low angle crack. Belay from gear on the expansive ledge above.

Location 

To the left of The Firing Chamber chimney systems, this is the obvious wide crack splitting the slab.

Protection 

2"-4" camming devices.

Only 1 semi-hard move in getting over the initial bulge. From there, it's a low angle cruise to the ledge. Once above the short bulge, hand/hand stacks will take you to the anchor with ease. Not a very sustained route but fun nonetheless and probably a good route to learn some basic wide techniques.
