Description 

Thin but protectable moves down low lead up to a great rest and a second little crux at the beginning of a loose finger crack. Stem the flake out right for maximum aid or climb the crack straight on for maximum challenge.


Location 

Climbers left of Concrete Gulley. Obvious thin crack up to a small ledge where more obvious finger to hand crack starts.


Protection 

Small stoppers and finger sized cams. One or two small hand cams helpful up top. Two bolt anchor.

Initial bouldery moves protected by bomber nuts. Rock quality is good, maybe by "loose finger crack" he meant rattly fingers. Ringlocks and stems up steep featured rock get your heart going before a few bomber hand jams lead you to the anchor. Great route!
