Mike Benson warms up on Powder Finger, Crank Cave.


Work up small flake to big holds, lieback on positive holds to great pocketed short upper section to anchors. A very fun routeĀ…just wish it was twice as long.


First route on the far left side of the wall.


4 bolts, sport anchors.

This route goes ok on gear..
We used a loweball and a #8 stopper for the bottom section and green and red C4s for the hand crack.
