|Finger Lickin' Area
An excellent crack for those just breaking in to the grade. Sometimes it is wet at the bottom, and partially sand filled higher up. Don't let this stop you. Pull through the crux at the bottom. Finger lock and jam your way to the top, then rappel from slings around a bush or walk off to the right.
This is the left of three cracks at the bottom of the Finger Lickin' area. The first to be reached on the approach trail.
Single set of gear.

I decked off this in '07 when a foot chip busted and my gear ripped a flake on the right (uninjured, thankfully). No temptations to stick gear behind that flake anymore, just bust the crux right off the ground and the locks open up to decent fingers at about 15'.

A lead would be exciting for sure. I think a crash pad would be a smart call...

I would say this is NOT a great climb if your breaking into the grade. Deck potential on the hardest moves down low is not a good combination for a budding .11 leader.

Enjoyable route with a bouldery start finishing with some great casual jamming. If you're tall you can place some small pieces at the base of the crack while still in the left crack to protect the crux moves.
