Description 

This is one of the classic crack boulder problems in the Valley. Approximately 20' tall with a short approach, flat landing, and easy walk off, this slightly leaning splitter finger crack is great for honing your thin fingercrack technique. Mostly first knuckle locks. Usually bouldered, but you could rig a TR if desired.


Location 

Find the wooden cabin #73 in Curry. Walk behind it on the right side and head straight up the hill, gaining a faint trail that leads directly to the wall, intersecting right at this problem.

Be warned that the last move has spit off many unsuspecting climbers. While the move feels quite solid, I have heard of at least 3 different people taking the fall and fuck'n up their ankles.
