Smith Rock. Bighorn Hand Crack. Photo by Blitzo.


South of the Techulator is this crag. Not particularily noteworthy but the location of a nice moderate splitter. This would be the Bighorn Hand Crack (5.7/8). Combine this with some of the other routes in the area for a quiet sunny getaway!

Getting There 

Follow directions to the Techulator and head south 1/4 mile. The Bighorn Hand Crack is on the sunny sw face.
