Description 

This short but fun route requires a bit of crack climbing technique. The crack off the ground is offwidth as it's too big for fingers and too small for normal size hands. A couple of strenuous layback moves get you to a stance with a bomber hand jam that gets you up and over to easier ground. Easier lower angle climbing gets you to the top.


Protection 

Small to medium gear easily protect this crack climb. There is a tree growing in the gully above whose branches can be used as anchors.

Crux is getting off the ground. Once over the lip you can basically walk.
