This variation into Keystone Corner starts with a couple of hard moves on tips liebacking and tips locks and quickly eases once you reach the first sinker fingerlock. Plentiful feet and low angle make the rings to tight-hands section of the variation easier than Keystone Corner itself.


This is a variation into Keystone Corner. Start well left of the corner from a ledge at the obvious thin crack that starts vertical and then angles up and right and joins Keystone. Walk off.


Small stopper(s), a finger and 1.25-1.5" sized piece for this variation, plus a couple of tight hands to hands sized pieces for the finish on Keystone Corner. Gear and/or tree/shrub anchor.
