This is a steep hand crack with good jams, but a fair bit of loose rock.


There are two obvious cracks on the wall. The left one goes over a roof at the top. This route climbs the right one.

If you look at the formation, at the top, it looks like a sitting cow....(Or a cat taking a shit;..we struggled on which name to pick for the route.....)......

a little rough, as pieces fell off on the ascent... but some exciting moves near the top for sure
