This is the overhanging finger crack/seam just right of Unrelenting Nines. In the guidebook it and the 5.10 that joins it up high are listed under a single entry, but I wanted to add a separate description here, since both are worth climbing, and this is one of a few 11+/12- cracks at White Rock that actually has decent gear. The crux is pulling the overhanging bulge on insecure locks or tiny face holds, which has good gear. It's a bit runout up high but the climbing is 5.10 up there.

Rated 5.12a. It's kicked my butt the few times I've tried it so I'd like to think it is harder. (If anyone's sent, and wants to rewrite the description and get mountainproject points, contact an admin and they can reassign it to you.)


start 8' right of Unrelenting Nines.
