Nick fist jamming through the lower section


A wide hands crack leads to a crux overhang finish.


This is the first crack system to the right of the Banana Cracks, and starts at the same height as they do.


Gear to 3 or 4 inches

Good climb, lots of solid fists in a corner.

I thought the cruxy finish was a bit scary (and harder than advertised), with potential to pendulum and smack back into the ledge if you came off near the end. Powerful, overhung campusing-type moves out left along the horizontal with nada for feet; good luck trying to place gear in that section.
