Supremacy lite. On the plus side, every move of this overhanging finger and hand crack is challenging. On the minus, there are not too many of them. If it were on Practice Rock, it would see a lot of traffic. Also, it's about as long as Deus Ex Machina, so if you consider that worth bothering with, maybe you'd think this worth your while.

About 10m left of Deus, there is a deep corner. Rycessica is the obvious crack in the left wall. (Note that there are unclimbed cracks on the right wall and in the corner.)

Starts w/ fingers, ends /w thin hands and has a couple of pulls on somewhat suspsect flakes in the middle.


Facing the cliff, about 10m straight left of the start of Deus. However, there is no ledge connecting from Deus. The best approach might be to climb Weather Report and keep going up for about 20m.


Will take small and medium nut and cams from thin fingers to #1 Camalot. Doubles from red Alien to Green Camalot might be a good idea if you like to sew it up like I do.
