BETA PHOTO: Your Mother...(5.9).

Description 

Nice 5.9 handcrack...just wish it was longer.

Jam and stem with an occasional hold. Crack widens near top.

(Usually dry, but dampness lingers after prolonged wet weather.)

Location 

From the Bridge Buttress, take the off-shoot trail left, cross small creek to meet-up again with wall. Go left a short distance to an obvious left-facing corner with beautiful handcrack. This is "Your Mother..."

Protection 

Hands. #5 Friend near top for "peace of mind".
Apparently, anchor bolts now installed. (If not, rap off tree.)

As a point of interest, there are now bolt anchors at the top of this climb, no need to rap off the tree. Not sure they were put in, but they were in fine condition as of Sep. 2012.
