Pure joy on splitter fingers

Description 

This beautiful, splitter finger crack begs to be climbed. The crux section through the steep bit goes from .4 Camalots to .5 Camalots - the hardest part for you will depend on finger size. Gain the welcome rest ledge at the top of the crux section and continue up the flake to the block/face above. Mantel onto the top.

According to locals, the topout is a popular hangout spot for snakes. Place a piece before making the topout mantel just in case.

Belay on gear.

Location 

The obvious finger crack - visible through the hedges from the parking area.

From the top, walk down and climbers right.

Protection 

Gear to 1".

3-4 cams in the .4 camalot/grey alien range are nice for the finger crack. Fantastic climb.
