Short hand crack dihedral. A fun way to the anchors above the Standard deviation wall. Would also make a good first lead for someone with a small rack.


Right section of Standard Deviation Wall. Closer to main Climber's Loop trail. Stands out as obvious Dihedral


Hand pieces, medium to large hexes would work well. Sling-able chockstones too... Plenty of ways to learn to place gear. Bolt Anchors at Top

Wow, you must have big hands. I thought I remembered this being BD C4 #4+ in size for the main crack. Definitely slingable chockstones though.

I would strongly advise AGAINST slinging at least one of the chockstones in there. Completely loose. But that crack is definitely #4 camelot size, but there's other good pro in other cracks. Also, there's an alternate 5.8-9ish start if you don't feel like going up the easy way. It's only 1-2 moves and protects with a 00 C3. Great option to get some extra difficulty in if you're leading it for a newbie, because they can unclip that first piece of pro and then go around the easy way.
