Solid hand jams narrow to fingers then widen again on a slightly overhanging left leaning crack. After this section a significantly easier finger crack leads to the top where there is a slung tree and rap ring(placed 2009).

This is not in the Edwards guide book as far as I can tell. I thought is was trial by faith but it is not.


Hike past the chipped steps at the pools where hikers hang out. Approximately 200 yards further look up the right side of the canyon. The start of the route is about 200' up the right slope of the canyon.


Gear to 3" and a couple finger sized pieces for the upper bit.

Kickass little crack problem! The first 15 feet is the business (and packs a punch!), followed by some annoying bushes and then a fun section of 5.7/8 fingers. A single rack of cams to 3" is more than sufficient for pro, nothing smaller than 0.4 camalot/#2 tcu needed.

This is actually part of Theology Crag, and should be submitted as the right-most route there.
