Left leaning hand crack that starts in so not so glamorous rock and ends in a dicey off-width.


This route is a couple hundred yards west of the practice cracks.


Bring mainly hand sized pieces with a few larger pieces for the off-width at the top.

BFF stands for Best Friends Forever. Named because of the routes similar appearance to the childs friendship charm.

The "offwidth" section at the top is protectable with smaller gear at the back of the crack removing the necessity of bringing along larger pieces. There is also no "offwidth" technique required to move through this short part.

Four #2 friends, 1 #3, and 1 #4.5 or #1 for the offwidth, will really sew it up.
