This fun finger crack is good practice for your finger lock technique. The easiest variation uses stems and face holds. The purest ascent uses only the crack. You can top out on the easy face, or down climb to the right.


This is the first crack to the right of Bolt Wall....

I would say significant difference in grade if you don't stem.

Finally stuck it (just the crack). I'm not much for bouldering, so I give it 5.11a.

Only been to the Rotary Park once. Stumbled up this one and thought I'd boulder it. Pretty fun and easy, but I did stem it (V1). Would def like to boulder it using only the crack.
