A good but short finger crack.


far right side of DuJour area, off by itself, you will see the splitter crack angling left above some blocky climbing.


gear to 1"- 2". 2 bolts and rap anchor. Small cams for the crux finger crack.

Maybe this route is entirely height dependent (I am 5'4"), but it seemed on par with squiggles at Trout Creek in terms of difficulty. I think the only reason this is 10a is that the crack is very short. However, it is also very thin.

I feel this is a sandbagged route due to the short, hard section. The majority of the route is 5.7, but the crack is 10b/c. It is WAY harder than cocaine crack on Icicle Buttress (10a) or Hello Kitty (10-) on middle eight mile buttress.
