Finally getting to the handcrack!

Description 

Climb the black chimney with the old piton, mantle out onto the first ledge, climb over the grass in the flake straight above, then climb the 10 foot splitter hand crack to the top.

Location 

Located to the right at the top of the Frighton Gully, the feature looks like a hatchet and has a perfect crack on the top left side. Feature is visible on the right of the Fret Aret Photo.

Protection 

Standard rack with some micro nuts

Great hang in wildflowers. Pretty darn good climb. In shade @1:30 at the summer solstice. Micro nut backs up old pin at start.

A lot of groveling to get the too-short-but-awesome handcrack above.
