BETA PHOTO: Vertical Rainbow Crack.

Boulders are on private property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start in the blocky corner, and move into the beautiful, arching finger and hand overlapping crack. Lock and jam your way to a place where you can move into the face above. Staying in the crack after the sidepull is a harder variation.

Location 

This climbs the obvious, arching finger and hand overlap.

Protection 

Finger to hand size cams and a couple of long slings.

The first half can safely be climbed as a boulder problem. If you are comfortable with overlapping hand cracks, this could be a highball as well.
