Crux section perfect rings.. rad!

Climbing regulations are in effect. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Plenty of good splitters in this small area! Start in the water on good hands which turns into tight hands then ring locks (crux). Use a few good faceholds when in the ringlock section. Then finish out the climb by stepping to the right side of the crack to gain a ledge below a tips/fingers dihedral. This is a good stance to huck a gainer into the water below.
On the FA a nose ring was ripped out at the crux be prepared.

Theres an OW to the right, left and another hand crack to the left that we climbed.

Location 

This climb is just before the turn into Bowns or Long Canyon. It is on the north side between miles 74 and 75. It is in a small inlet into the north side of the canyon. It is most easily seen by the splitter off-width that is 3 crack systems to the right.

Protection 

DWS.
