This is an awesome, awesome, awesome splitter fist crack. Even if you don't like fist cracks, do this climb. It is really good!


1 each #1 and #2 Camalots. 3 #3 Camalots. 8 pieces in the #3.5 (old style Camalot) to #4 (old style Camalot) range (what I'm trying to say is that it goes from average fists to pretty big fists, and while 8 #4 C4's would work, it's nice to have some slightly different sized pieces). A 70m rope gets down... a 60 might?

That is, unless they don't fit and then you'll love having your elbow in there

The "fists" section disappeared pretty quickly for me. Hand-size dependent as far as that goes.

Fist was to small, elbow to big and hand stacks to strenuous. Hardest 11- I have ever touched

But what a line

The highlight of my latest Creek trip and the climb that stands out above the rest for pure quality desert climbing. Grade wise not the biggest tick you will get but aesthetically it doesn't get any better, just look at the setting. Big hands would make this climb almost easy but just think how hard all those tight hand cracks would be.
