At the crux.

Jamb up the handcrack through a bulge to a ledge. Above this is the crux, a short but strenuous overhanging fist crack section. Finish to the anchor on the much easier handcrack.


The obvious hand and fist crack in the center of the formation.


2 each cams from 1" to 3.5"
50 meter rope

All the routes on this wall are pretty darn quality...the two sport routes around to the left are a little bit less so....The .11c is fun and challenging but has some smelly bird doo doo on it.
