The crack in the center of the face just left of New Corner. Easy but a good lesson on crack technique.


Left of New Corner, right of Simple Corner.


Nuts or cams to 2 inches.

I think this climb is in the .9 range. The 1/4" to 3/8" fingertip crack section before the keyhole is in no way lower that a 5.9. Great lead though with lots of pro.
