Description 

Fun climb up a nice line, with some excellent fist jams. The large crack system at the left end of the crag. Begin by climbing to a ledge, then a hand/fist crack to the top.

Also, from the ledge you can climb up the route 3 crack for ~10 ft then angle up a ramp to the right to meet the upper part of route 5, bypassing both cruxes. Nice ~5.8 lead.


Location 

Route #3 in Chen/Wehner, but is not in the South Side beta photo.

This climb is also listed as Beverly #5 (5.9) but is not in Jackson.


Protection 

Gear to 3".

TR can be set up with 2 static lines, one to a juniper and one around a boulder

Fun climb up a nice line, with some excellent fist jams. I donít find this route particularly painful. TR can be set up with 2 static lines, one to a juniper and one around a boulder. Also, from the ledge you can climb up the route 3 crack for ~10 ft then angle up a ramp to the right to meet the upper part of route 5, bypassing both cruxs. Nice ~5.8 lead.
