Gary L. nears the finish on Knife Crack.
Even if this was the only outstanding route at this little crag (and it isn't), Knife Crack alone would make a visit to Griffin's worthwhile. Finger crack climbing at its finest with plentiful protection; the only thing wrong with Knife Crack is that it's too short.

A short distance down the trail from the waterfall; starts about 10' right of Whetstone.
Small to medium gear (cams/tricams/nuts); ring anchors.

At the start with a lot more to go.
