Description 

The cracked corner to the right of The Return of Geoff Beene.

Squeeze up the chimney to get to the corner crack. It starts as wide hands and gets wider. Blue camalot to #6 cams were all very helpful but there are a few tricky hand size placements in a horizontal 10ft from the top.

Not a classic but good fun. I used it as a warm up for the fingery classic to the left.

Location 

Just right of The Return of Geoff Beene.

Protection 

Wide hands to wide wide. Though hand size stuff can work in the horizontal up high.
