Eddy Young cranking on Jesus Caballero (5.12a)


This cool little corridor is a super unique area with a handful of climbs and an awesome handcrack. Its up in a gully between the TNT wall and the Conundrums and requires an approach pitch to access. One 70m rope will get you down in a single rap. The ledge is big and comfy and you can come off belay.

Getting There 

Head up to the TNT wall and then climb Argos (10d) or the dirty gully to the right to approach the big ledge.

Beautiful, sustained hand crack that kicks all the sport climbers' asses and that's why it's sometimes referred to as the toughest 12a in the canyon. The initial moves are water polished and hard but it eases up little bit after the 3rd bolt, AND THEN IT COMES BACK! This climb was originally led on gear by el Jefe....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
