This excellent, dead vertical, splitter crack ranges from fingers to thin hands to perfect hands. The climb starts from an enormous ledge halfway up the center part of midnight rock.
Soft at the grade.
You can climb Steven's Pass Motel, Sting, or Wasp to reach the giant ledge.
Excellent gear the whole way. Gear to 2 inches.

After over 30 years of extensive rock climbing, this could be the best pitch that I have done ANYWHERE! I was just up there today solo-toproping, did three laps. I'm guessing that I have done this pitch at least 150 times over the years...and it still rules!
