Description 

The next step after Orange Peel. Beautiful and bold. Make bouldery moves right off the ground using awkward holds. You can't place good protection until you've made it about 15 feet. Plug in your first piece, then keep swimming straight up into the perfect handcrack above. The climb overhangs consistently by a few degrees throughout. Arrive at the belay ledge above and clip the chains. Whew!


Location 

This is the obvious handcrack on the steep, left side of Cracked Canyon.


Protection 

Nuts and cams.

VERY scary start. I never managed to get over the crux near the bottom because the landing would be so ugly if you didn't make it. Pretty heavy commitment.

Great route, Royal! Bouldery start + sustained jamming = pump.
