Description 

This climb begins with a bit of unprotected face climbing to reach a short but steep, hand and finger crack. The crack is the crux, but be prepared for a bit of spicy climbing getting to it.

Location 

Just south of the Kloof Alcove locate a steep face to the northwest at the top of a broad slab. The climb begins at the top of the slab. At the top of the crack pitch, traverse right along the belay ledge and then head up and left to the top of the formation.

Protection 

Thin hands to finger-sized protection.

Climbing to access the first fixed pin (which is terrible) is 5.8, PG-13. The beginning of the crack is 5.10- then predominantly 5.9 for a bit.

If the splitter crack were the length of a full pitch, there would be a line to wait in to get on this climb but the best quality is for about 20-25'. The second pitch is easily adjoined for 125' total as a single pitch. Take large stoppers and double down on hand-sized gear.

Also - the best approach is via Jimmy G. (5.9+, fingers and hands - strenuous).
