Get your feet in the crack!


This very clean thin hands crack is much more strenuous than it looks. It leans slightly and is just barely overhanging. When you are 15' up you get the feeling that you are climbing out the angled roof of a cave! After 25 feet or so it eases. 2 stars out of 5.


Standard rack up to 3".

Physical hand jamming on smooth varnish inside the crack. Harder that it looks from below.
