Description 

A beautifully difficult finger crack.

Start below an overhanging finger crack that runs through a bulge. Start the boulder problem, get some high gear and crank through the flared finger jams. Once established above the bulge, the crack turns into a moderate hand crack and face climb. There is a few spots of loose rock up high, but nothing to worry about.

Location 

Left side of the wall, next section of rock after the Sam I Am route.

Protection 

Focus on the finger size gear, doubles in the .4-.75 range (Metolius sizes work very well also), singles to #3 camalot, tri-cams and nuts may come in handy. Long slings are not necessary and most things can be clipped direct. Two-bolt anchor on a nice ledge.
