This line climbs the lower face and then up the prominent hand/finger crack in the middle of the wall.

P1: Climb the large, low angle right-facing dihedral with a large tree in it. Head left above the dihedral towards the base of the crack. (5.7)

Alternatively, climb P1 of Aerial Book.

P2: Enjoy the easier-than-it-looks hand/finger splitter to a bolted anchor at the top of the wall.

Descent: 2 Rappels. Midway chains are down and rappeler's right.


Right in the middle of the face.


Gear to 3", emphasis on wide fingers/hands.
