Start with an impossibly small crimp and a dish for your thumb, with feet on the huge ledge. A couple desperate moves deposit one into the amazing hand crack that finishes Flight of the Navigator. Time for the crimping men and women to pull out some traditional skills and jam to the top! Fun through and through!


Face climb just to the left of the two parallel cracks upon arriving. There is a low mono pocket to the right of the start that could help this go as a very difficult sit start.


Couple pads and a spotter.
