Start standing on the boulder and pull over a roof in the nice hand and fist crack. If the start feels super hard keep fishing for holds. This crack is really good but really short.


Far right side of the main wall. look for the straight-up fist crack that's close to Open Book.


Gear to 3". Also takes large hexes well.

A good crack route, if somewhat dirty. Needs more traffic, so get on it and lead it!

Fun route and would make a solid lead. Drop a large nut or hex in from above for a bomber first piece.
