BETA PHOTO: Not bad for Little Falls..


The best handcrack I've seen in Little Falls! The first 15ft-ish is pure jamming with maybe one outside edge. It gets progressively wider the higher you go.

On my first attempt on this crack I slipped out of a jam low on the belayer took a #5 camalot to the face from my harness..ouch. The rock also gouged a hole in my knee. Maybe next time..


This climb is located on the Upper Tier. The best way to access this area is by climbing Prepare to meet thy God (5.7) to a large, grassy ledge. Scramble up to the cliff band, this is the Upper Tier. This climb is located on the right side, just right of TrickBag (5.11b sport)


Gear is good. BD#1-2 for the bottom. I can't tell you about the top..wide.
