This route is a very nice splitter hand and finger crack. On the 5 star scale it gets 2.


Cams and nuts to 3". Pro is good and easy to place.

Where's the route? It looks like it's the crack over towards the right side of the formation (the one with a climber on it in the big photo), but your description doesn't say for certain. Looks like a fun one though ...

Yes, it is the crack with the climber at the bottom. My descriptions will be a bit more concise in the future.

The crux is passing a small delicate feature, (the mail box flag) without damaging it. A pox on the gumby that eventualy pulls it off! Cruxy finish also.
