  • Description 

    Not very visible from the ground as it is in the alcove between Fuson's Folly and Crack a Lo Lo. Scramble through the chimney (sort of a solo that is very easy, although you could rope up if you feel unsafe about it). Belay at the top of the Alcove. Climb up about 40 feet of unprotected slabby (but juggy) face to the horizontal crack which leads to the slanty and beautiful hands and thin hands crack. A little tricky if you aren't a crack climber but very fun.


    Gear, nuts and cams, no anchor. Walk over to the upper set of anchors (Where lost my religion and Fuson's Folly end). Either bring two ropes or rap twice (through the whipping post anchors) ooorrr bring a stretchy rope and do one rappel from the top (which is possible although you might have to down climb a tiny little bit. just tie knots in the end of your rope.

    This is an absolute must after doing For a Rocker or Crack a Lo Lo! Then walk over to the chains above Rap Bolters. Proposed name change: "Crazy Alice's Hotter Younger Sister"?
