Description 

This is the obvious, splitter, finger/tips crack facing south at the Asteroid Belt area. Start off with good finger locks and pull the initial bulge to get to a rest. After the rest, the crack pinches to tips locks where each move gets harder than the last.


Location 

Follow directions to the Asteroid Belt by walking past the Manx boulders for about 10 minutes to the east.


Protection 

To set up a TR Take two BD #4's and some micro nuts. To lead it'll take blue and black aliens at the crux or 0/00 metolius.
