Description 

This pitch is deserving of it's own page.

From the large belay ledge, head up and slightly right through blocky, ledgey terrain until under a small roof. step left and out onto the airy face with the beautiful hand crack above you. Climb up over the bulge through the crack (crux) for about 15', to finish on easier ground to the top. Though harder than the standard finish, this is WAY more fun. Highly recommended.

Location 

From top of 2nd pitch of Standard Route, this is the hand crack about 10' to the right of the standard chimney finish.

Protection 

Standard canyon rack.
