This is a fun and challenging hand crack, one of the better trad lines in the Pinnacles. To the right of Mule Kick, there is an alcove with a divergent crack system. Start up for about 10 feet, then follow the left-slanting crack. Approaching the roof of Mule Kick, transition into the right-slanting crack and follow this to the top. Use the bolted anchor for Mule Kick.


gear to 3", bolted anchor shared with Mule Kick

Fun little route. Begins with exposed though not high off the deck traverse that protects every 2 feet max. Pulling the dike overhang through the crack is fun, too.
