EXCELLENT finger crack that splits a steep slab. Takes great gear the whole way. Not many routes like this in CT. Great line


Located to the right of weinsser's rib (another good route). Easy to identify: a splitter finger crack in a solid slab. Can be found by going up to middle of cliff and then traversing right along the bottom. Hard to miss


Good gear the whole way. At top, escape down a steep gully to the left. Please avoid rapping on trees as pulling your rope from them greatly damages the tree.
