BETA PHOTO: The Bane of Vince goes straight up the face.


Slightly contrived, maybe reachy, but there are fun moves. Vince has been trying to work the face directly, this line strays slightly right.


Face to the right of "Forgotten Finger Crack". Use a right crimp around the corner, left hand in a vertical seam halfway up, match right hand and get into the horizontal seam on two decent holds. Right of the vertical seam is off.

Love the name. Is this one of the 3 lines Travis was talking about in his comment under #12? I haven't really figured out what is what on this little wall, I guess I need to go back out to Group B sometime and try to figure this out and take a pic or two.

I think what I did is what Melin described as "straight up the right crack just left of the small overhang". I stayed inside the finger crack to the left and the upper seam on the right.
