This is the obvious, excellent, thin crack on the south side of the "World's Greatest Boulder". Refer to the "NE Arete" problem for directions and orientation.


A pad and spotter,'s a little high on good holds near the top.

This is 1 of 2 problems with obvious chalk on the opposite side from the finger crack. It is in a shallow, left-facing corner in the middle of the face. Please let me know if this is incorrect, since I would not call its location south side.
