This is a great fingercrack that takes awesome gear, I have no idea why it was given an R rating here.
Admittedly, there is a low techy crux, but you can stuff this thing full of gear. I placed a small cam from the ground so I'd have a spotter, and sewed it up with a couple yellow and red aliens.
Great climb with cool tiny knobs on the face, only wish it was longer, the fun was over soon after it had begun.

Absolutely not an R.
This crack feels really polished for some reason and, in the sun on a moderately warm day, I almost thought I was going to grease off on the upper half (right before it eases off).

|For me, this crack is easier (and more fun) than Greener Pastures. It is more intense climbing for the first half of the climb, but then it eases off quite a bit. Takes bomber pro and bomber fingers. Definitely undeserving of the "R" rating as the pro placement is rather textbook.|
