In the Wideness!!

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Follow the right-leaning fist crack just to the left of "Two of a Kind". A fun, short outing with a wide, fist jam crux. Bigger hands will help with the wide fists. Between the wideness you will find good jams. Worth doing if you are in the area.

Location 

The obvious, right-leaning crack on the north side of the east face.

Protection 

SR to #4 Camalot.

Fairly strenuous, continuous fist jams plus a couple of stacks will get you up 'Poker Face'. Most foot placements are almost imaginary unless you can sneak a toe into the crack itself and placing pro is not easy. Harper and Johnson put this up (FFA) in the summer of '93. I've talked to several who have done this route, some with a hang or two, and most consider it 10b/c - leaning towards 10c. While one guidebook (RK) gives credit where credit is due, the other (ZO) does not.
