Description 

This is the splitter, short fist crack that marks the corner between Neat and Cool and Corn Flakes. "Neat and Cool Offwidth" is the unfortunate name given in the McClane guidebook, but it's really solid fists through the business, nothing offwidth about it.

After the nice start, continue rambling up the easy and vegetated corner. The climbing is fun and the protection is adequate. Near the top the crack becomes caked in munge and it may be best to step left into Corn Flakes (or bring a shovel).

Location 

The obvious,straight-in corner on the right side of the Neat and Cool crag.

Protection 

One or two 4" cams protect the start. The rest of the route takes an assortment of hand-sized pieces. Shares an anchor with Corn Flakes.

The name is accurate if #4s aren't fists for you! :) The beginning is a short splitter butterfly-hands crack for lady-hands. At the top it feels a bit contrived to stay in the mungy corner instead of exiting to Corn Flakes, but the munge option isn't hard either.
