An inviting hand crack (right of Existential Exit) ends below grassy ledges. It can get a bit waspy up there.


Gear to 2", bolted anchors.

This is a really good 5.8 crack, interesting climbing, protects well. Surprisingly hard near the start so be sure to protect crack well.

I agree. Spent a whole day here working on my technique with a friend. Hands and fingers here for practice... great feet. Crack turns into a blocky finish to the chains.

The crack was good jamming, but it's only a little more than half the pitch. The upper blocky part is easier, but the pro sucks because almost every block is loose.
