This crack comes in two different parts: the first half is steep extremely thin, and hard, the rest is wide and moderate. The easier second half detracts a bit from the overall quality of the route, but the bottom part makes it worth it.

Boulder up about 10' to a ledge, stuff as many small cams (think purple TCU and black Alien) as you can in the splitter tips crack, and gun it. I personally can't fit my fingers into the crack anywhere in the first 15', but there's just enough face holds to make this go. Expect weird stemming and spaced-out edges.

I cleaned this route extensively and installed anchors right before I had wrist surgery. Please refrain from climbing it until I have a chance to complete my recovery and redpoint it.


Look for a clean, steep tips crack behind a tree on the middle/right side of the wall.


Gear to 4", chain anchors.
