so there's this beautifully split boulder between the rattlesnake canyon area and the johnson (aka cove) canyon area. it's a pretty splitter overhanging hand crack that widens somewhat near the top. the rock is streaky near the top. wonderful line very photogenic. it's pretty much a ground level boulder. maybe 30-35ft tall or so? very distinctive, visible from quite a distance. surprised it wasn't in the vogel guide. the jams get better as you get higher, felt like a 10? pumpy when placing gear so frickin often to keep from decking. very fun very good route. any ideas?
