Description 

One move up to a horizontal crack, traverse around the corner bumping your hands until you arrive at the amazing vertical hands crack. Land sweet, sweet, jams all the way to the top. Last couple of feet the crack narrows to perfect hands/off finger. I found the crux to be at the chockstone, smaller hands can get a fist jam or two at this section.

This can be lead or bouldered (route is 25ft but the boulders top is 18ft off the ground).


Location 

The start is 5ft left of Big Mama. See the photos here for helpful reference points.


Protection 

Standard Rack.

There are options for top anchors and if you go ropeless exit/down climb via the chimney/alley to the East (facing the ridge). Comfortable down climb.
