Stars for the 2nd pitch handcrack, which is great. Definitely favors larger hands (3's).

The 2nd pitch fists to hand crack is fantastic. The first pitch is complete funk though. Next time I'll probably climb bday party, dried oatmeal or something else that's fun to get to the sundeck boulder, build an anchor, and rap in to do it. It's definitely worth doing if you like crack and you're at Pinnacle
