A long hand/finger crack. The best route on the wall. This would get more stars if it was located in a more accessible area. Starts offwidth for a couple moves through a roof right off the ground. Then wide hands to hands to a second roof stepping left and up a narrow hands to fingers section. You eventually have to use another crack on the left to finish.


When hiking up the gully between Poe Buttress and the Turkey Foot Tower. This crack is on the left side of the Hall and visible upon arrival. Look for the wide roof down low.


2 of each size Camalot #0.5-3, plus one #4 and one #4.5.
