Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This perfect splitter handcrack is really a continuation of Libra Crack but is often climbed by itself. To climb the crack w/o climbing Libra there are two options:
1. Climb the 5.0 gully past the giant rings and up the corner before traversing left to the base of the crack.
2. Climb the 5.4 corner above, and just left, of Blockbuster before traversing left past an arete to the base of the crack.

Location 

Right of the twin cracks above the giant ring anchors.

Protection 

Gear to 2.5".

I found the hardest move on this route to actually be the traverse left from the top of the 5.4 gully to reach the base of the handcrack.
