Existential Exit is a short finger crack up a face. Moves start under the lip, coming out to the face on bomber finger locks. The locks continue up the face to a flake just past a horizontal break in the rock. Jog right to get into the hand crack int he corner and the belay above.


On the way to Careno Crag, about 10 minutes above the driveway. According to the Kramar guide, this climb is in the Purina Crags area below Careno.


Bring a set of cams to #3 and a set of nuts. The finger crack takes nuts like nobody's business.
