Varying from tight hands to fists/offwidth and back to hands and fingers, with plentiful face holds and a slopey finish, Graham's is one of the many Steele classics.
Distinctive varying crack to the left of a large boulder and 15' right of Papillon.
Trad gear to #3 Camalot. Bolted anchors. Bring big gear to sew up the crux if needed.

Great splitter crack climbing! I'll admit my crack technique isn't the best, but the original 5.7 rating on this route is a real sandbag. The climbing is pretty sustained with little opportunity for rests (with the possible exception of a "thigh-jam" in the wide section). Also, some bigger gear in the #4-5 camalot range, while not mandatory, can increase your comfort level.

can climb with face holds/lieback, real crack technique needed to stay in the crack through the crux.

Amazing crack with opportunities for hands, fists, fingers, and offwidth technique. Classic

It is hard to miss this beauty, nothing but interesting moves for the first 40ft. Really pumpy for a route this grade but then again I think I tried placing gear in the worse places.

try the route using crack only/jams only .....for an extra level of challenge
