Climb on top of a pillar. Pull through the thin finger crack into the slot and use the good hands in the roof to get yourself nicely wedged in. Shimmy through this until the crack begins to shrink, then get inverted! Scoot along altering leg cams and desperate hands. The crack shrinks down again and you have to reach up and get your hands back in it for a few more desperate moves to the anchor.

As the guidebook puts it, "Climbing doesn't get any better (or funkier!) than this."


Far right side of the Pillars, very obvious arching feature


#.2-6, doubles?
