Beautiful route, what it lacks in length it makes ...

A great pitch with fun jamming above. Just pull the crux down low and start jamming. Belay from slings around a bush or walk off to the right.


This is the middle of three cracks at the bottom of the Finger Lickin' area. The first to be reached on the approach trail.


Gear to 2.5 inches. Extra 1.75 - 2.5

Wires work well on the intial fingery section, that requires more pulling than you expect. Bulge is on bomber hand jams but still feels awkward. Top is cruising on #1 camalot size splitter, so save at least one piece that size for the upper half.

There's a bolted anchor at the top between this and Jawbone, works to rap from both of them.

Tough first 10 feet, but the rest is amazing. I thought the roof was super straight forward; both hands and feet are on perfect golden cam sized jams!
