Perfect hand crack in the space between the pillar and the wall. Two pillars are mirror images so you can practice with a left and right facing dihedral. Solo up to the bridge and walk in to the building, exit out the stairwell. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Peter Hayes & Jim Steele made numerous visits to this stellar hand crack starting in 1983. It widens as you go up, and is a perfect introduction to pure hand crack climbing... tape if you plan on spending some time in it...those bricks are rough! This was one of a series of climbs this duo would do on a regular basis. Because it is so sweet and inviting, there is little doubt that it had been climbed before.
