Another 10 worth climbing at the NNP.

Get into the overhanging hand crack, followed by a good rest. Head up an unprotected section over the bulge on slopers directly above; or, better yet, step left, make a weird move back right onto a ramp; (or begin the entire climb as for Batshit Crack and traverse left above this- variation 10 in photo). Enter a shallow dihedral with a thin crack. This has enough small gear placements to keep it safe. When you reach the finger crack, you're through the crux.


This climb is about 10' left of Batshit Crack.


Nuts and cams to 3".
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top.

A #000 C3 protects the awkward undercling bulge move from the left pretty well. It's still at your feet when you're pulling over it but the fall would be pretty clean I think.
