Gett'n' Buzy in Box Canyon, Ouray. 12/12/02.


This is a combination of descriptions by Joey T & L Paik.

Jesus Christ Built My Finger Crack lies on a narrow buttress with overhanging transition to ice curtain. Uphill from Verminator, downstream from Dream Team. A pleasure and a pump.

Details: Shred the Krispy Gnar on this Test Piece. Stick picks up & over first two bulges.(good rock pro) Power up finger/hand crack. climb overhang to gain WI6 Hanging Curtain. Pull lip and ascend WI3 ice to top. An all trad ice climb.

30m. Thin ice to rock crack. Interesting hammer jam midway. Delicate rock and thin ice moves keep your attention. Key right hand jam in overhanging rock bit connects 2 very positive left hooks. Moderate ice above. Great fun.


Nuts & cams to 4 inches, with emphasis on fingers to hands, screws, longs slings for big trees at top.

Toprope Protection 

2 trees at top with long slings to below rock band. Go R/downstream to tree 40 feet down. Watch for rope dropping into water.
