  • Description 

    The polished finger/hand crack that dominates the right side of the "A"-shaped rock at the height of the climbers trail.

    A tricky start to gain the crack then cruiser to the top. This route may feel a little pumpy if you are not using your feet wisely!


    At the height of the climbers trail. The right hand crack.


    A standard rack with doubles in the small to medium sizes, plus a good assortment of stoppers. A 60 meter rope and a cordelette for the anchor.

    Best route I've climbed at Lower West. The start is very polished, which has bumped the grade up a notch.
