Start by ascending a thin finger crack with a small, hand-sized pod and a triangular block at the top; a blank face on the right keeps things interesting here. About 15 feet up you gain a ledge and then continue your way left up a nice dihedral split by a thin-hands to fingers to perfect-hands crack. Crux seems to be getting into the crack above as it leans out left and overhangs ever so slightly. Very fun route and a classic at Potrillo!


Begin 10 feet to the left of Lower Kor's Crack. It is route #13 in the Potrillo miniguide and shares the start with Gymnast


1 set cams (0.5 to #2 Camalot); 1 set stoppers protects the bottom section quite well.
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top, was installed to prevent further damage to trees.
