Well-protected, pumpy crack climbing through a steep bulge characterize this airy journey.

Climb the first 6 feet of the traversing 2nd pitch of "Pete's Farewell", then climb the short face to reach the bottom of the initial crack.

Take this until it's end, make a balancy move left a couple feet to reach the bottom of the right-facing corner. Hard moves over this to a welcomed rail. Mantel onto the rail, place some gear and blast through the final bulge, with smeary feet and thin finger locks.

Finish the route by traversing right a couple feet into the final, blocky steeps of "The Disputed". Shared chain anchors.


6-feet into the traversing 2nd pitch of "Pete's Farewell".


A rack of small to medium nuts, plus finger size cams up to A single #2.

Beautiful, well protected finger crack with great position, on great rock!!! I think one of the better finger cracks in the park.

What a great finger crack. The sustained portion before the crux follows fun first knuckle locks with pastey feet, and a couple decent rest stances, the crux is full on, then it's moderate to the top with long reaches between big holds. Don't pass it up if you're in the area.
