Start this route with a reachy move to sustained finger jams. Next, shove your hands in the shallow/ackward hand crack and make progress towards the easier terrain above. Bolted anchor.


Walk 5 minutes from the parking pullout on the right side of the road until you walk to a Y in the trail at the base of Practice Rock. Take the left Y in the trail and walk up hill for 100M until you find the chalked up finger crack. You be jammin' next!


Singles .1-1 Camalot
Extra .3-.5
A couple slings
I did not place any nuts, although some would go in.

First Ascent: the one and only Pat Callis. In the late 60's I believe.

Stunning, pumpy, thin fingers. Don't miss this route - the best on the rock

Climbed this with Pat a couple of times at the tour de hyalite and other times. He thinks that going straight up the middle is the way to go and after watching him do it I have to agree.
