Description 

I am going to come out and say that this is one of the best hand cracks around WA. It starts out thin down low and widens to large fists at the top. A nice long route that gave me that great hand crack pump.

Location 

It is the obvious hand crack starting off a pillar ramp.

Protection 

nuts to 3.5-4" many hand sizes.

Awesome route, one of my favorite cracks in tieton. It's the type of climb I think about. . Wish I had two #4 camalots.
