A great warmup or first lead, Tango Crack takes a nice splitter hand/fist crack up low angle rock to the left of High Neb Buttress. Pulling off the ground is the crux. Enjoy pleasant jams for 25 feet or so until the crack runs out into a scrambly chimney. Follow this to the top.


20 feet left of High Neb Buttress. Obvious vertical crack. Walk off right.


Good fist sized gear, with some nut placements in horizontals to either side of the crack.
