The excellence that is granite.


A excellent long finger crack!

This climb follows the plumb line that Wafer Step (5.5) joins at the half-point of this wall.

Enjoy moderate moves until you reach a point where the crack squeezes down and won't accept fingers, then pull the crux face moves and enjoy the easier ground above.

I'm not sure what the OP means by a "long finger crack". Like so many routes on the island, this route is both of superb quality, and tragically short. As in perhaps 30' of climbing short. A one (really, really fun) move wonder, albeit one with impeccable rock, in a gorgeous setting. Absolutely worth climbing, but don't expect anything long or sustained.

yes, very true about the "long" statement, perhaps a great top to bottom finger crack would be a better description since so many of the island's cracks are broken by ledges.
