BETA PHOTO: Half Dome North Topo

Description 

More grainy (and awkward) than its neighbor to the right, this crack is still worth doing. If new to crack climbing, it will likely seem more difficult than the right crack. If experienced, it makes for a less committing solo than its neighbor.

Location 

the lefthand crack of the two cracks on the north face of the Half Dome boulder

Protection 

toprope or OTD boulder problem

Like the description says - grainy. Worth a run if you're there.

The bottom may be grainy, but once you brush off your shoes the locks are bomber and the face on either side of the crack provides awesome friction.
