This slightly left leaning hand and finger crack packs a whole lotta punch for 10.c

Start in a dirty flakey hand crack and jam your way up to excellent rock a few feet higher. A hard crux hits you at about 2/3 height where the crack thins.

Bolted anchor.

Update October 2014:

The route description mentions "dirty flakey rock". From the ground it may look that way, but when you actually climb the route you won't find any unpleasantness.

Great route, better than Hand Job, gets you tuned up on ringlocks/thumbstacks/thin hands for sure!
