This is the widening hand crack on the left. Rap from slings.

A few interesting moves on good rock in the opening 6 feet sucker you into the hanging choss and easy climbing above. It's a stinker.

It is true, it's a stinker but I'm lobbing a star onto it because it's a crack with a bolted anchor above. NOT worth hiking up there, even if the hike was 5 minutes vs. 10. Maybe okay if you're there to tick the wall but it's pretty loose and overall not that great.
